Industry News: Lilly’s Foods Leading in Sustainable Packaging Initiative
Hummus and Salsa Brand Touts 100% Recyclable Packaging & Leads Category Overall
Portland, Oregon (March 27th, 2019) – Lilly’s Foods, an Oregon-based company leading the hummus and salsa categories with its non-GMO, small batch recipes, touts 100% recyclable packaging, including tub and label. In efforts to the brand’s commitment to increasing sustainability overall, Lilly’s made the move to enlist in recyclable materials as its commitment to the health and well-being of consumers, families and our planet. Since their beginning, the brand has enlisted a handmade, craft process, including using non-GMO and organic chickpeas, an industry leading initiative as well. Lilly’s is also well-regarded for the brand’s commitment to using whole foods, rather than blended ingredients, to make fresh hummus and salsa products – such as real olive oil, pure organic sesame tahini and other clean, simple ingredients. Consumers can find Lilly’s hummus products in retail dairy cases nationwide.
According to recent Nielsen data, 60% of North American consumers are concerned about sustainability in packaging waste. Lilly’s understands that their core, environmentally-conscious consumers value sustainable packaging practices and line up to meet their needs. As a brand committed to organic, non-GMO, flavorful hummus, the packaging transition was a clear next step.
“Lilly’s Foods has always valued sustainability on par with organic ingredients and flavorful varieties,” shares Lilly’s Foods Founder Lilly Miscoe. “By offering 100% recyclable packaging, we are fulfilling our mission of offering foods that are delicious, good for you and good for our earth, as well. We care a great deal about nourishing the lives of our consumers, overall – earth, body and soul.”
Lilly’s Foods has made its mission about more than superior hummus. A focus on environmental sustainability, organic ingredients and ethical sourcing has helped to steer each decision on the brand’s part. From retail store shelves to foodservice partnerships, Lilly’s strives to offer consumers products that brings more than better tasting food to the table. Lilly’s strives to offer quality ingredients to those looking for a better way to feed the ones they love. Lilly’s newest packaging initiative will continue to promote the quality that Lilly’s stands behind.
