Del Monte works on developing compostable fruit cups

Del Monte is working to develop a compostable fruit cup as well as beverage and fruit cups that contain recycled content. This effort is part of Del Monte’s goal to continue improving on sustainable packaging and make all of its plastic packaging 100% recyclable by 2030.

The company is also seeking to include 25% recycled content in its plastic packaging by 2025 once recycled polypropylene supply is available with FDA approval.

The company has been working to reduce its packaging footprint by investing in new and redesigning existing materials. Spokespeople have stated that 4% of its packaging by weight is made up of plastic and the rest is made up of fully recyclable steel, glass or paper materials.
