Environmental and social stewardship are the heart of Nutiva’s business plan, according to Derek McNamara, senior purchasing manager, so the plant-based organic superfoods brand strives to offer sustainable packaging, including recyclable and compostable options. In this podcast with Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, McNamara covers Nutiva’s packaging and other eco-friendly initiatives. They cover:
- Consumers increased demand for sustainable packaging
- The effects of Nutiva’s zero-waste headquarters and warehouse
- How Nutiva donates its coconut oil steel drums to gardeners who create rain catchers.
McNamara will be speaking at the SupplySide Workshop “Sustainable, Safe and Sanctioned Packaging for CPG Brands” on Friday, Oct. 18, 2019 at 9 to 11 a.m. This session is underwritten by Alpha Packaging.
