Westmoreland and Apeel have joined forces to eliminate single-use plastics from Long English Cucumber packaging. This is Apeel’s first Canadian supplier relationship, bringing the two companies together to focus on environmental impact while maintaining product shelf life and freshness consumers come to expect.
According to Fresh Plaza, in the first year of the partnership, Westmoreland expects to avoid 185,000 pounds of plastic use—which is the equivalent of 200 million plastic straws, or enough shrink wrap to cover 485 football fields.
