FoodChain ID has launched Sustainable Packaging Services, a suite of products and expert-guided services to help food and cosmetics brands and their supply chains meet market demands for sustainable packaging. Sustainable Packaging Services combines new and existing digital services that enable manufacturers to monitor and respond to changing global regulations on sustainable packaging.

The new offerings were developed under the guidance of FoodChain ID’s Customer Advisory Board, which includes some of the largest Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies in the world.

Said Jason Grimm, Senior Vice President Digital Solutions at FoodChain ID: “Industry partnerships are key to meet the urgent need for sustainable packaging. In this rapidly evolving environment, we need to cooperate and learn from each other. Our Customer Advisory Board is engaged on the top challenges for a sustainable packaging supply chain, including packaging design, environment, food safety and regulatory expectations.”

Added Conor Kearney, CEO FoodChain ID: “FoodChain ID is leading industry-wide collaboration to drive responsible innovation and supply chain alignment for sustainable packaging. As an outcome of the collaboration, FoodChain ID’s Sustainable Packaging Services addresses the need for brands and manufacturers to understand regulations and emerging issues, as well as access subject matter experts for packaging compliance.”

Sustainability remains a key focus for CPG companies, with consumer demand and regulations both driving the market. In the EU, for example, a major proposed regulation covers packaging and its waste to ensure that all packaging on the EU market is reusable or has the provision for high quality, closed-loop recycling in an economically viable way by 2030.

Concurrently in the US, diverse regulations at the state level are creating a need for real-time regulatory monitoring. To date, twelve US states have banned single-use plastic bags and four states have adopted ‘Extended Producer Responsibility’ laws to help fund recycling programs.
