HARVST VS. THE COMPETITORS
It takes approximately 26 truckloads of unfilled glass jars compared to one truckload of unfilled flexible pouches to transport packaging for equal amounts of product.
A favorable product-to-package ratio makes pouch packaging both the environmentally and fiscally responsible option. To package 60 pounds of beverage, it takes 50 pounds of glass, 6 pounds of rigid PET and 3 pounds of aluminum. This is compared to the 1.5 pounds of flexible pouch plastic needed for the same amount of beverage.
Flexible pouch packaging also contributes to lowering food waste. In the U.S., 40% of all edible food is wasted, making up to about 14.6% of the total U.S. Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) stream. This not only impacts the environment but also consumers’ wallets. The average American throws away $28-43 in the form of about 20 pounds of food each month. Wasting 15% less food would save enough to feed 25 million Americans.
