AMI is partnering with the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) to conduct a survey about packaging in the meat industry in an effort to identify ways to increase the packaging recovery rate.
The survey’s results will be compiled and will form the basis for a new strategic document that will be released in 2011.Through the effort, packaging issues will be prioritized based on practicality and their potential for positive impact on the environment.
“This effort is part of AMI’s ongoing sustainability initiative,” according to AMI President J. Patrick Boyle. “We are seeking ways to optimize packaging to reduce its impact on the environment. The survey’s findings will help identify options for increasing packaging recovery rates while continuing to provide high quality meat and poultry products packaged in ways that satisfy our customers.”share on facebook share on twitter
