West­more­land and Apeel Sci­ences have joined forces to elim­i­nate sin­gle-use plas­tics from Long Eng­lish Cucum­ber packaging.

Accord­ing to the release, this is U.S.-based Apeel’s first Cana­di­an sup­pli­er rela­tion­ship, bring­ing the two com­pa­nies togeth­er to reduce the envi­ron­men­tal impact of cucum­ber pack­ag­ing, while main­tain­ing prod­uct shelf life and freshness.

We’re thrilled to team up with Apeel,” said Westmoreland’s VP of sales and mar­ket­ing, Dino DI Lau­do. “We want to do bet­ter for our earth, our retail­ers and all the fam­i­lies we help feed every­day.  This part­ner­ship with Apeel allows us to check all three of those box­es.  In the first year alone, West­more­land is aim­ing to pre­vent the equiv­a­lent of eight mil­lion water bot­tles worth of sin­gle use plas­tic from enter­ing North Amer­i­can landfills.”
