Natural Delights® Launches 100% Recycled New Packaging

YUMA, AZ. (November 11, 2019) – Natural Delights, the nation’s #1 Medjool date brand*, is proud to announce the launch of sustainable packaging. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic, Natural Delights’ new green packaging will apply to all tub containers and roll into stores this month.

“Our new green packaging for tub containers will help to keep 800 tons of plastic out of landfills and oceans, reducing water consumption by 34 million gallons and eliminate 1,200 tons of CO2 emissions,” said David Baxter, brand manager of Natural Delights. "In addition to our plastic packaging, we are converting most of our display materials to kraft material which is certified by the sustainable forestry initiative. This change increases the amount of recycled material used by 50% and improves the recycle-ability of the box.”

Natural Delights has made significant investments in converting its date packaging to the most sustainable option on the market for dates. “We continue to invest in packaging sustainability in order to do what is best for our business, consumers, and the environment." remarked Baxter.

The Natural Delights line offers Whole, Pitted, Organic and Pitted Organic Medjool Dates; Premium Chopped Medjool Dates; and Medjool Date Rolls with flavors such as Coconut, Almond, and Cacao with Pecans.
