"We are so proud to transition our packaging to be more environmentally friendly this year," said Meiky Tollman, Chief of Operations and Supply Chain for Sabra. "Being supportive of the environment is important to so many of us on a personal level, but as the leader in the refrigerated dips and spreads category, it is important for Sabra to take a leadership role as a company as well. As we take important and bold steps to increase our social responsibility this year, we hope to inspire our customers and partners to make similar commitments, appreciating that these core values can guide our decisions and successes together."
Sabra began transitioning packaging in 2009 to PET (1), made of 30-45% post consumable recyclable raw material, the most commonly used recycled plastic by consumers. Use of post-consumer recycled content in recyclable plastic is widely accepted as the most sustainable plastic packaging solution, by reducing the use of virgin material while taking considerable amounts of plastic out of the waste stream.
