Eden Foods Receives Responsible Packaging Award

Clinton, Michigan - Eden Foods has been commended with a "Green Packy Award" based on the Responsible Packaging Guidelines for the Organic Industry, a collaboration headed by Whole Foods Markets Green Mission's Responsible Packaging Forum.

With the proliferation of green packaging claims - "green, sustainable, responsible, degradable, recyclable, bio-based, etc." - the forum is working to establish a shared vision for responsible packaging by encouraging food purity, ecological practices, and developing congruent metrics.

This responsible packaging award was given to Eden in recognition of using BPA-free cans in all 33 of its organic beans, including chili, rice & beans, refried, and flavored. Eden beans are prepared in steel cans coated with a baked-on oleoresinous c-enamel, which does not contain the endocrine disrupter chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA). Oleoresin is a non-toxic mixture of oil and resin extracted from various plants, such as pine or balsam fir. These cans cost 14 percent more than industry-standard cans that do contain BPA. Eden is the only U.S. food maker to use BPA-free cans, and has been since April 1999.

Eden Foods received this award at the Natural Products Expo West trade show in Anaheim, California, on March 11, 2010.
