Cascadian Farm goes Greener!
Good news from Cascadian Farm! One of our favorite organic companies has gone even greener with the introduction of the first-ever cereal box liner made from renewable plant sources. Cascadian, which makes almost 100 great organic products, including frozen fruits, juices, cereals, jams and more, has been doing so since 1972. They’ve grown beyond their original farm and have become pioneers in the organic movement.
And just last week Cascadian announced another organic breakthrough: the introduction of the first-ever cereal box liner made from renewable plant sources. Cascadian Farm Cinnamon Crunch cereal is now packaged in an inner bag made from up to 57 percent certified plant-based material. This new liner is the latest among the brand’s various sustainability initiatives that support its mission of helping to shape a better world.
Jennifer Jorgenson, marketing director Cascadian Farm, says, “At Cascadian Farm, we know that every choice we make can help shape a better world now and for the future,” said . “A desire to protect our Earth’s resources led us to develop this groundbreaking inner bag.”
Packaging and sustainability experts at Cascadian Farm developed the plant-based liner with the help of leading sustainable packaging developers. The plant-based liner is a key initiative by the brand to utilize renewable resources. To communicate the extended environmental benefits of the new plant-based liner to shoppers, Cascadian Farm has introduced a new design for its 100 percent recycled paperboard Cinnamon Crunch box, which features graphics and messaging about the inner bag and features a USDA certification noting that the package is bio-based.
