Berry Helps Wells Create Widely Recyclable Blue Bunny Twist Pints

Global packaging leader, Berry Global Group, Inc.., worked with U.S.-based ice cream manufacturer, Wells Enterprises, Inc., to expand its Twist Cones frozen treat line into single-serve, freezer-grade Twist pints for Blue Bunny. The new pints, which offer a new twist on soft serve, are currently available at retailers across the U.S., including Walmart, Kroger, Food Lion, Albertson’s, Safeway, and Publix. Made with widely recyclable polypropylene (PP) and a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) lid, the new Twist pints improve the recyclability of traditional ice-cream packaging, which is generally made of plastic-lined, paper board. The pints are also designed for nestability during transportation and storage, minimizing wasted space during transportation. This helps optimize supply chain efficiency and lessen the need for truckload shipments. “Berry is an excellent partner for Wells. They understand our need for innovative, sustainable packaging and have worked closely with us to develop it,” explained Julee Zugel, Director of Strategic Sourcing. “We appreciate how engaged they are with our team to understand new opportunities in the packaging arena. They are innovative, forward thinking and an example of how a partnership should work.”

June 2024: Summer Boost: Rising Consumer Engagement

The apparel sector shows strong demand compared to other industries experiencing subdued or stable demand. Despite this, all sectors saw increased consumer engagement in June. The rise in website sessions, alongside flat demand, indicates heightened consumer interest. However, fewer orders may reflect economic uncertainties despite a 3.38% increase in average order values from the previous year, suggesting cautious consumer spending. Businesses should adopt strategies to capitalize on consumer engagement while navigating economic challenges for sustained growth. Economists anticipate a slowdown and speculate on potential Federal Reserve interest rate cuts by September. The upcoming 2024 presidential election introduces financial and investment uncertainties, with J.P. Morgan Wealth Management discussing these implications and emphasizing sector-specific impacts like finance and healthcare. Despite short-term market volatility, the long-term effects of elections on markets and the economy remain unpredictable, urging investors to maintain a stable, long-term financial strategy.
