Sustainable Food Product Packaging
How Post Cereal Is Made – Smart, Sustainable Packaging
The packaging we make is just as important as the food that goes inside it! Discover the process behind our sustainable food packaging that’s right for you and our planet.
Innovations in Food Packaging
We are pioneers when it comes to packaging innovation. In the 1960s, Malt-O-Meal® was the first breakfast cereal brand to ditch the box and sell cereal in a bag. Today, that is just one of many ways we use fewer materials.
As a Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) member, we collaborate with other companies that use sustainable packaging to uncover new ways to improve recyclability and innovate materials.
Our Recyclable Food Packaging
Post Consumer Brands is committed to reducing our environmental impact by reusing packaging materials. Many Post cereal boxes are made from recycled paper materials. Since 2020, we cut back on paper packaging material used by nearly 1 million pounds as part of a broader packaging improvement effort.
How to Recycle Our Food Packaging
Post Consumer Brands is also committed to giving you the resources you need to help reduce our environmental impact. One of our major educational efforts is implementing How2Recycle (H2R) labels across our portfolio of brands and products.
H2R is the next-generation recycling label that helps inform consumers how to accurately recycle, or where not feasible, properly dispose of packaging and where to find information specific to their municipality. We have already defined H2R labels for over 85% of our products. Learn more about the different H2R labels.
