ConAgra Foods to use recycled content in meal trays

ConAgra Foods expects to eliminate 8 million pounds of plastic waste each year by using recycled content in its frozen meal trays.

The Omaha, Neb.-based food maker is now using between 30% and 40% post consumer recycled plastic in trays for Healthy Choice, Banquet, Kid Cuisine and Marie Callender’s brand frozen meals.

The company said it is the only in North America using post-consumer recycled plastic in frozen meal trays.

"Our commitment to innovation means we are looking at all aspects of our products as we consider new ways to improve them, including finding ways to be more environmentally responsible," said Gail Tavill, ConAgra Foods vice president of sustainability.
