2022 Packer Sustainability Insights Highlights

The Packer recently released its 2022 Sustainability Insights report that aggregated the sustainability practices and perceptions of the 664 growers, consumers and retailers that were polled. Three stats in particular highlighted the critical need for recyclability to be a key component of a successful packaging program.

When asked, "How important is sustainable packaging to you?", 60% of respondents answered 'Extremely Important' or 'Very Important'.
