In October we reported on new packaging that Target's Archer Farms Organic line was using. The packaging was made from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified paperboard stock and produced using renewable energy. At the time of the story it was unknown who was producing the packaging and Target did not respond to our inquiries. We have since learned Curtis Packaging is producing the packaging for Target's Archer Farms Organic line.
According to Curtis, they are the first printing and packaging company in North America to be 100% Carbon Neutral, use 100% renewable energy, and be FSC certified.
Related to packaging for Target, Curtis is currently working exclusively with Target's Archer Farms Organic line. Curtis's Rosanna D'Oleo told Sustainable is Good Target has expressed interest in "possibly expanding the FSC certified packaging to other lines of Archer Farms." D'Oleo said while there was interest no specific plans or time frame for expanding the packaging has been established.
D'Oleo said Curtis is constantly innovating to bring to their customers the latest environmentally friendly packaging techniques. The company focuses on serving the health & beauty, personal care, liquors, and gourmet foods/confections industries.
