Multi Packaging Solutions, a leader in print and packaging for the healthcare, horticulture, media, and value added consumer markets, announced today that it has expanded its Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody Certifications to include four additional manufacturing locations. The company has also certified five facilities to Rainforest Alliance Chain-of-Custody Certifications standards.
Multi Packaging Solutions now operates the most extensive sustainable print and packaging network in the US with seven FSC Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities, five Rainforest Alliance Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities, and two Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities.
Chain-of-Custody Certification is a promise to customers that products labeled with the FSC, Rainforest Alliance, or SFI logos come from sustainably managed forests. It ensures that each link in the supply chain maintains the integrity of the label by verifying that controls are in place to prevent mixing of products from certified forests with products from uncertified forests.
“Chain-of-Custody Certification is a cornerstone in our commitment to sustainable print and packaging, which combines smart design, materials science, technical innovations, and responsible manufacturing.” commented Dennis Kaltman, President of Multi Packaging Solutions. “Certifying our network under the three leading sustainable forestry programs provides customers a range of solutions for their environmental priorities. Having multiple locations certified under each program also offers back-up capabilities and surge capacity for products carrying the FSC, Rainforest Alliance, and SFI labels.”
The company’s FSC Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities are located in Dallas, TX; Holland, MI (2 facilities); Indianapolis, IN; Louisville, KY; Lansing, MI; and South Plainfield, NJ. The company’s Rainforest Alliance Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities are located in Holland, MI (2 facilities); Indianapolis, IN; Louisville, KY; and Lansing, MI. The company’s SFI Chain-of-Custody Certified facilities are located in Dallas, TX and South Plainfield, NJ.
