ELGIN, ILL. — John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. is introducing more sustainable packaging for its line of Fisher brand 2-lb food service snack and baking products.
The packaging is currently produced in metallic mylar film, but the new packaging will ensure a portion of the package has been made using plant-based renewable resources and not oil.
"The Fisher brand is helping to protect the earth for future generations one nut at a time," said John Garoni, director of food service sales with John B. Sanfilippo & Son. "The new packaging is friendly to the food as well as it does not affect the quality of freshness of the product because the packaging maintains the same barrier properties as standard mylar film. In addition, all the products are nitrogen flushed to maintain freshness and shelf life."
