PACKAGING
Prioritizing
transparency
Consumers are looking for dairy packaging to represent authentic sustainability.

rom communicating transparency around
environmental claims to using advanced technologies
to improve sustainability, the dairy industry is focused
on responsible practices in the development of packaging.
The scope of this responsibility includes developing
innovations that support multiple initiatives, including
reducing food waste and promoting recycling.

packaging as eco-friendly and

and that has led to the use of more modified atmosphere
packaging and innovation in aseptic technologies.
" On the end-user side, they want to see technologies that
extend shelf-life that have the convenience but without all the
additives and preservatives, " Izquierdo said.
The industry is also seeing a movement toward the use
of high-density polyethylene and more recyclable content
in packaging products, but this focus on recyclability often
comes into conflict with other industry trends, Izquierdo
said. As an example, many dairy brands are gravitating
toward more flexible packaging that requires fewer overall
materials, but these packages are often not as easy to recycle.
Additionally, in many instances sophisticated laminations
are being used that offer extended shelf life, but it can be a
