Pactiv Canada acquires US recycled PET cartons producer

Pactiv has announced that Pactiv Canada acquired the assets of Canadian producer of custom-labeled Recycled PET (RPET) egg cartons Interplast Packaging, for an undisclosed amount.

Pactiv president and CEO John McGrath said Interplast’s family of RPET cartons improves the company’s existing line of molded fiber egg cartons and offers an environmental and sustainable alternative, for packers and retailers of premium label eggs, in particular.

"Much like we have done in other food packaging segments, Pactiv will now be able to offer solutions in multiple materials to the egg packaging market, providing this customer base with the opportunity for increased value," McGrath said.

Recently, Pactiv acquired the stock of International Tray Pads & Packaging in North Carolina, US, which manufacturers a line of absorbent products used in fresh packed point of purchase meat, fish, poultry, and produce.

Pactiv operates 55 manufacturing plants in seven countries and produces food service disposables and food packaging.
