One of the United Kingdom’s largest food retailers, Sainsbury’s, announced a packaging switch for its steaks as another step toward the company’s sustainability commitments. The retailer is replacing plastic trays with a cardboard tray alternative that uses 70% less plastic. The new trays are available at all locations and online across 10 products in the Sainsbury’s steak line.

FiveStar Gourmet Foods

Under its Simply Fresh Salad brand, FiveStar Gourmet Foods has debuted a new Organic Caesar Salad Shaker exclusive to Costco. Not only does the patented design of the packaging create convenience by giving the consumer the ability to shake the ingredients in the salad together, but it is also environmentally conscious, being made from recycled plastic water bottles.

Beatrice Bakery

Beatrice Bakery, a baker of gourmet baked foods, has added Grandma’s Southern Pecan Cake to its portfolio. The cake features a caramel aroma, brown sugar, dates and pecans, the company said. It’s available in a 24-oz box for $32.95 and will be available at major retailers this summer.
