Filippo Berio Introduces Industry-Leading Sustainable Packaging and New Products at Summer Fancy Food Show 2022
Filippo Berio, the 155 year-old Italian brand and one of the nation's top-selling olive oil brands, will introduce its new, more sustainable packaging and new product offerings at the 2022 Summer Fancy Food Show. Filippo Berio's newly shaped olive oil bottle, which is more ergonomic and visually impactful for enhanced shelf presence and visibility, is made of 50% rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate). rPET bottles require less energy to produce than PET plastic bottles, while also helping to minimize plastic waste and reduce demand for new petrochemical resource extraction. Filippo Berio USA is the first among the leading companies in the U.S. olive oil category to introduce a recyclable bottle made from 50% recycled plastic (rPET). "Consumers are increasingly seeking out products with recycled and recyclable packaging," said Marco de Ceglie, CEO of Filippo Berio USA, "and we hope others in the sector will join us in supporting the transition to a circular economy. We all need to do our part to minimize our environmental impact, and we're proud to take another step forward in this process of continuous improvement."
