Albertsons chooses TemperPack’s ClimaCell for pharmacy shipments

US-based grocery chain Albertsons Companies has partnered with sustainable packaging solutions firm TemperPack to adopt paper-based insulator ClimaCell for pharmacy shipments.

US-based grocery chain Albertsons Companies has partnered with sustainable packaging solutions firm TemperPack to adopt paper-based insulator ClimaCell for pharmacy shipments.

The company will replace its traditional Styrofoam coolers with TemperPack’s insulators.

This move will allow the retail chain to divert 75,000lb of packaging waste from landfill every year.

ClimaCell is claimed to protect temperature-sensitive shipments for up to 80 hours and reduce packaging waste.

TemperPack sales senior vice-president Rob Hazelton said: “We are thrilled to partner with Albertsons Companies pharmacies to assist in reducing the environmental impact of their packaging.

“As one of the most highly respected industry and consumer brands, Albertsons Companies’ move to ClimaCell leads the way for other pharmacy and life science companies to switch without sacrificing the efficacy of their temperature-sensitive products.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Albertsons Companies pharmacies to assist in reducing the environmental impact of their packaging.”

As part of the deal, Albertsons is planning to introduce new packaging to nearly 50,000 speciality care patients, physician offices and clients later this month. It will expand the roll-out to further stores over the next year.

Albertsons Companies speciality care director Erin Shaal said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be the first retailer to make the move from Styrofoam to ClimaCell.

“We are proud to have a 100% curb-side recyclable product in our packaging portfolio and know it will benefit our customers and our planet.”

TemperPack offers custom packaging solutions for the perishable food and life sciences industries. It currently operates three facilities across the US.
