In 2018, Kraft Heinz had pledged that its entire packaging would meet these requirements by the year 2025. The company has partnered with the consultancy group, Lorax EPI, to elucidate how much of its packaging is recyclable, reusable and compostable.
As per the findings of the ESG report, most of Kraft Heinz’s packaging is paper-based, or uses glass or metal materials that are reportedly recyclable. The rest of its packaging is made up of flexible plastic films or rigid plastic containers.
In addition, some of the packaging innovations Kraft Heinz have launched include the Maxwell House coffee pod, which is 100 percent compostable, alongside an outer carton that is also recyclable.
