In alignment with its vision for a more sustainable future, The Kraft Heinz Company recently introduced the world's first paper bottle packaging for ketchup. As the world’s first sauce company to use paper bottle packaging, Heinz is setting itself apart with a bottle made from 100% sustainably sourced wood pulp.
Heinz created the sustainable paper packaging solution in partnership with Pulpex and it addresses an industry-wide challenge with regard to plastic use. With global household brands like Heinz embracing this type of innovation in sustainable packaging, change is on the horizon. The Heinz bottle has not yet made it to market and it still needs performance assessments and consumer testing before launch.
Ultimately, Heinz is working towards making all of its packaging globally recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
