The Key to Success for Forward-Thinking Growers

November 2021

More than half of U.S. consumers are highly concerned about the environmental impact of packaging in general, according to McKinsey & Company*. In Europe, a Pro Carton study found that the environmental impact of a product’s packaging affects over 60 percent of consumers’ purchasing decisions**. Globally, consumer perceptions around plastic packaging are shifting and the need for retailers to adopt plastic alternatives is growing.

To meet this trend head-on, growers and grower-packers have an opportunity to get ahead of the game and tap into the benefits of fiber as a viable alternative to plastic packaging for fresh produce.
