Wegmans Launches Sustainable Egg Packaging


Wegmans will introduce a paper-pulp carton for eggs that is recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable.  Cartons are fabricated from post-consumer recycled newsprint and paper products.  Wegmans estimates that the change will eliminate 300 tons of foam-equivalent cartons annually.  Ron Indovina, merchandiser for dairy and frozen products, noted “We decided to make the switch to paper pulp cartons because we heard from customers they wanted a fiber option.”

The new paper pulp cartons were trialed in Massachusetts over an eight week period in April in cooperation with New York state egg supplier Kreher Family Farms. 


Wegmans operates 106 stores in seven states and is ranked 35 on the Progressive Grocer 2021 list of the Top 100 Grocers in the U.S.
