Castroville, Calif.-based Ocean Mist Farms has numerous sustainable packaging initiatives, said Afreen Malik, director of technical services.

“We’re vigorously exploring options for more efficient packaging configurations that not only reduce the amount of materials used for packaging production, but also result in fuel conservation during transport, yielding an overall reduced carbon footprint,” Malik said.

The company has minimized its use of waxed cartons and continued its transition toward readily recyclable packaging materials, “achieving our benchmark for waste reduction in 2013,” Malik said.
