Innovative Food Packaging Supports Safety and Sustainability Goals
A global leader in specialty polymer packaging materials, DuPont offers unmatched expertise from concept to consumption.
Beverage and food packaging play a critical role in meeting food safety requirements and environmental goals. Consumers want food and drinks to be fresh, appealing, and safe. And both consumers and producers want to minimize the impact packaging has on the environment.
DuPont helps create beverage and food packaging that maintains freshness and extends shelf life, helps reduce spoilage and waste, and can be recycled. Lightweight packaging also reduces the environmental footprint and can even reduce shipping weight, which may save fuel.
DuPont unveiled the first soda bottle made from PET in 1973. Since then, we have continued to collaborate with brand owners, converters and equipment manufacturers to help keep items fresh and safe in a more sustainable way.
