Pactiv works to stay ahead of changes in packaging, even as plastic bag ban nears

There’s a plant in Ontario County that likely has a big role in something you’ve brought home from the store recently.

Pactiv LLC is the world’s largest producer of food packaging and food-service products. They have more than 50 locations.

Pactiv is responsible for Walmart’s Great Value brand packaging, Hefty brand plates, and even the containers that Wegmans Market Cafe meals are kept.

The company has been working tirelessly to stay on the ‘cutting edge’ of recycling and reuse for the various products they create.
