“In the food industry today, there is no widely available solution for recycling the flexible film packets that are so commonly used for condiments,” says Liz Matthews, Taco Bell’s Global Chief Food Innovation Officer. “So, we’re thrilled to leverage the expertise of TerraCycle to recycle our iconic sauce packet packaging in a way that’s as bold and innovative as our menu.”
“Now more than ever, consumers don’t want to sacrifice the planet no matter how delicious the meal,” says TerraCycle CEO and Founder, Tom Szaky. “Together, Taco Bell and TerraCycle will push the quick service industry by finally finding a way to recycle this type of product. This effort takes us one step closer to keeping packets out of landfills and our mission of ‘Eliminating the Idea of Waste.'”
