Better Earth launches new packaging, adds new hires

Sustainable foodservice packaging company Better Earth Compostable Products has launched new taco clamshells and expanded its team with three new hires.

The 2 and 3 Taco Clamshells provide a convenient, eco-friendly solution for on-the-go tacos. Made from unbleached bamboo fiber, the 100% compostable containers are free of PFAs, wax and plastic linings, according to a news release from the company.

The freezer-safe, soak-proof design ensures tacos remain fresh during transit, while the containers compost in two to four months in a commercial composting facility. The clamshells have two- and three-holder options and a locking lid. Suitable for hot and cold foods including hot dogs, cannoli, sushi and lobster rolls, the design is also available with custom four-color printing.

The new clamshells will be launched across North America in the next two months.

Better Earth, with offices in Atlanta and Chicago, also announced the hiring of a human resources manager and two account managers.

Jarrod Durrence has more than 20 years of HR experience across multiple industries covering staffing, training, benefits, incentives, recognition and compliance for organizational initiatives.

Rob Landingham has 10 years of sales experience in the Molded Fiber industry within the foodservice distribution and processor channels, while Bryan Shanley has 10 years of account management and development experience in the consumer packaged goods and foodservice industries.

“The addition of these talented individuals to the Better Earth team demonstrates our commitment to providing quality packaging solutions and services to customers that address our industry’s most pressing environmental concerns,” Better Earth CEO Joseph Bild said in the release. “With their expertise and shared passion for environmental advocacy, we are confident in our ability to grow our brand, raise awareness of our mission, and promote our sustainable products to consumers and businesses.”
