Evergreen Packaging, Memphis, Tenn., and New Barn Organics, Healdsburg, Calif., announced that New Barn Organics is transitioning its Almond Milk line, previously packaged in plastic, to Evergreen's PlantCarton paper packaging.
"At New Barn Organics, we are dedicated to organic and the environmental responsibility that comes with it," said Ted Robb, chief executive officer of New Barn Organics, in a statement. "We heard clearly from our customers that a transition to plant-based packaging versus petroleum-based packaging is right for our brand and right for our products. And since a key premise of our business is to be transparent with our ingredients and sourcing decisions, we are dedicating space on a panel of the cartons to the PlantCarton story."
DeWitt Clark, Vice President of Sales North American Packaging for Evergreen Packaging added: "We believe New Barn Organics is one of many companies listening to consumers about their packaging expectations.”
All of Evergreen's PlantCarton packages are made with at least 70 percent renewable material; paper made from trees where responsible forestry practices are used, the company says. PlantCarton packaging also is recyclable.
