 Huhtamaki is bringing its fiber expertise to the US as an alternative to foam egg packaging.
 
As of today, twelve states have enacted legislation aimed at banning expanded polystyrene packaging. The most common application for this material includes foam “peanuts” for packing, coolers, food service cups and plates, and egg packaging.In 2022, Huhtamaki announced a $100 million investment into a 250,000-square-foot expansion of its Hammond, Indiana, molded fiber manufacturing plant. Huhtamaki’s state-of-the-art technology will provide a full range of highly customizable egg cartons that are fiber-based and manufactured from 100% recycled North American materials. The cartons will offer increased branding space and will be available in several colors.
 
“We are pleased to work with Huhtamaki since we are aligned with their vision to protect food, people, and the planet,” said Ryan Miller, CEO, at Farmers Hen House. “One of the pillars of our business is to be good stewards of the environment, our farmers, and the community. For us, this includes sustainable packaging. It is simply the right thing to do.”
 
This investment into the North American market demonstrates Huhtamaki’s commitment to making packaging better through optimization of material use, developing sustainable options, and delivering fit-for-purpose packaging that helps transition to a circular economy.
