Press Release: Evergreen

Plant-based packaging solutions firm Evergreen Packaging has expanded its Sentinel portfolio with the launch of a new fully renewable ice cream board

Evergreen Packaging, a specialist in plant-based packaging solutions, has unveiled its new Sentinel fully renewable ice cream board. Coconut Bliss, a plant-based, dairy-free ice cream producer will be the first customer for the new, eco-friendly paper-based packaging made with a renewable coating derived from sugarcane. The combination of Evergreen’s Sentinel and Coconut Bliss is the first use of plant-based bio resin polyethylene pint cup ice cream packaging.

“As a USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified company, Coconut Bliss is always looking for ways to limit its environmental footprint,” commented Kim Gibson Clark, president and CEO of Coconut Bliss. “That’s why we are so excited to introduce this packaging that performs the same way as traditional ice cream packaging but is made with renewable materials. Plus, we love the fact that our plant-based ice cream is served in plant-based packaging!”

“We know that the use of renewable materials is a value that is central to many of our customers’ brands, and we believe this is the first of many companies who will extend that value by purchasing paperboard such as Sentinel for packaging that is fully renewable and responsibly sourced,” added Chris Johns, vice president of Paperboard sales and marketing for Evergreen Packaging.

Sentinel paper and paperboard products are designed to be used in a variety of food service and retail food-grade packaging applications with varying shelf life needs, including ice cream with its specific controlled environment requirements.
