The Fully Renewable Ice Cream Board is a first of its kind, eco-friendly paper-based packaging
November 22, 2019
In a world where the environment and sustainability are top of mind, Smithville packaging manufacturer, Stanpac Inc., is pleased to announce that Oatly, makers of oat-based food products, has launched new packaging manufactured by Stanpac. Oatly has chosen a paperboard cup combined with an innovative renewable coating derived from sugarcane. Stanpac’s paperboard supplier Evergreen Packaging introduced Sentinel™ earlier this year. The Fully Renewable Ice Cream Board is a first of its kind, eco-friendly paper-based packaging.
Sentinel™ is manufactured from renewable resources, paper derived from trees from forests where responsible forest management practices are used, and the coating on the board is sugarcane-based polyethylene, making the board fully renewable.
“We were so glad to learn that Evergreen and Stanpac are committed to furthering their own sustainable offerings and that they came to Oatly as a partner to get those options into the world,” said Oatly US General Manager Mike Messersmith. “As a company committed to developing new food options for sustainably-minded consumers, it’s great to have packaging partners equally committed to lowering their footprints.”
Stanpac is pleased to play a part in helping Oatly expand its commitment to sustainability and responsible sourcing.
