CLINTON, Mich.Eden Foods earned a Green Packy Award, based on the Responsible Packaging Guidelines for the Organic Industry, a collaboration headed by Whole Foods Markets Green Missions Responsible Packaging Forum. With the proliferation of green packaging claims green, sustainable, responsible, degradable, recyclable, bio-based, etc. the forum is working to establish a shared vision for responsible packaging by defining exceptional principles and developing congruent metrics.
This responsible packaging award was given to Eden in recognition for use of BPA-free cans in all 33 of its organic beans, including chili, rice and beans, refried, and flavored. These beans are cooked in steel cans coated with a baked-on oleoresinous c-enamel, which does not contain the endocrine disrupter chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA). Oleoresin is a non-toxic mixture of oil and resin extracted from various plants, such as pine or balsam fir. These cans cost 14-percent more than industry-standard cans that contain BPA.
Eden received this award at the Natural Products Expo West trade show in Anaheim, California, on March 11, 2010.
Eden Foods is a 42-year principled manufacturer of natural food offering more than 250 authentic, organic, traditional, pure foods.
