Consumers are demanding their products be more environmentally sustainable—including the packaging. Dietary supplement brands are taking the lead using less packaging, finding more environmentally-friendly materials, and exploring additional recycling opportunities—and even re-use of containers. Innovation and creativity are proving to be critical in responding to consumer demands and setting new benchmarks to follow. It's important to remember, that, in addition, as a regulated category, specific FDA requirements apply because dietary supplement containers are food contact surfaces.
