The clementine packs are available in stores from July to November is 2lb and 3lb formats
Greenyard USA/Seald Sweet has launched a sustainable label for clementines made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), a type of plastic that can be recycled through store drop-off bins.
The new packs, which feature an eye-catching new design highlighting the company’s +110 years of citrus heritage, can be found in stores between July and November in 3lb and 2lb format.
“The most interesting thing of this new label will be that it is introduced on fully recyclable packaging,” said marketing coordinator Helena Fernandez.
“As part of our sustainable journey and as a global leader in the industry, we are committed to using 100 per cent recyclable packing by 2025.”
Greenyard said packaging is just one of the many focuses of its sustainability roadmap, which is aligned with the goals of its retail customers.
“Seald Sweet was born as a Florida Citrus cooperative in 1909 and has been growing, packing, distributing, and selling fresh produce ever since,” said president and CEO Mayda Sotomayor.
“Growing from citrus, to importing a wide variety of products, we have continued to remain a leader in this evolving industry. Be on the lookout for more exciting things coming from us this year.”
