YORK, PA.- Volpi Foods, a manufacturer of cured meats, announced that it partnered with C-P Flexible Packaging (C-P) to launch a fully compostable package for deli meats.
C-P’s proprietary GreenStream compostable packaging is certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and meets the standards established under ASTM D6400 test methods.
“When we decided to rebrand, we wanted to set the stage for our strategic direction also. Incorporating our Responsibly Raised Pork Program and marrying that together with our Artisanal production methods was paramount to the company,” said Lorenza Pasetti, chief executive officer of Volpi Foods. “The final implementation was the use of less plastic in our packaging. We wanted to make a statement that all companies can have a positive effect on the environment by reducing the amount of plastic used. C-P worked with us to ensure this strategic goal was made a reality.”
Since 2020, Volpi has worked to convert all products to sustainable packaging starting with packages that use less plastic than standard deli meat packaging.
Volpi chose C-P to engineer this fully compostable package without compromising durability, machinability or sealing properties. After use, the package can break down into natural compost—carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
“We are proud to invest in technologies that can reduce our impact on the environment,” said Mike Hoffman, CEO of C-P. “It’s an honor for us to work with a responsible and visionary company like Volpi. They are leading the way to a better future.”
