Danone first to switch to PLA for yogurt cup in Germany
from Packaging World
Danone has switched to Ingeo™ PLA from NatureWorks for its Activia brand yogurt in Germany. The new yogurt pack is the result of a close cooperation between Danone, WWF-Germany, and NatureWorks. The switch to the material will improve the product's packaging carbon footprint by 25 percent and will use 43 percent less fossil resources compared to the previous packaging, according to a life-cycle assessment (LCA) study conducted by the Heidelberg-based LCA Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IFEU).
