Foodservice Packaging Institute

Established in 1933, the Foodservice Packaging Institute supports the responsible manufacture, distribution, use and disposal of foodservice packaging products. In order to address one of the industry’s greatest challenges – increasing the recovery of foodservice packaging through recycling, composting or energy recovery – FPI facilitated the launch of the Paper Recovery Alliance (PRA) in 2012 to support the recovery system through development of the collection and processing infrastructure by aligning supply chain recovery partners, expansion of end use markets for¬†recovered materials and educating and engaging consumers to increase recovery.
