Food packaging solutions provider Sabert has started construction for its new manufacturing facility in Greenville, Texas, US.
The new facility will manufacture plastic packaging and 100% compostable packaging made from plant-based materials.
Scheduled to become fully operational by early next year, the Greenville site will generate more than 125 local jobs.
The addition of the facility is in line with the company’s quality and sustainability drive.
Sabert founder and CEO Albert Salama said: “The more sustainable options we can offer our customers, the more we help the environment by replacing products that might end up in a landfill.
“We aim to make packaging that is compostable and will disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment, providing for a better future for us and our children.
“We commit to building a world-class facility, create many jobs and provide our workers with a safe and enjoyable organisation, helping to expand our community, deliver more options to our customers and be a valuable corporate citizen.”
Founded in 1983, the company designs, manufactures and distributes a range of packaging solutions for food distributors, restaurants, caterers, supermarkets, national food chains and consumer entertaining.
The company operates North American facilities in New Jersey, California, Kentucky and Indiana, as well as manufacturing plants in Belgium and China.
