Vericool, provider of compostable and recyclable thermal packaging, announced a multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract with Raised Real, a subscription-based, meal delivery service created specifically for growing babies and young children. This month, Raised Real will start shipping its organic meals in the Vericooler III.
Vericool’s low-cost Vericooler III is proven to keep food products cold from packaging to receipt while at the same time significantly reducing landfill waste. The packaging is moisture-resistant and has a molded design that virtually eliminates thermal edge loss, reducing the amount of required coolant and total packed weight. The company notes that the packaging takes the guesswork out of disposal as it is made from post-consumer plant fiber, making it RecyclapostableTM (100% curbside recyclable and compostable).
Raised Real assembles “organically-sourced, nutritionally complete, pre-portioned meals and flash freezes them to secure peak nutrition. Their meals are delivered to Raised Real members every two weeks.”
"At Raised Real, we want our packaging to reflect our values of sustainability and quality," says Santiago Merea, CEO of Raised Real. "The kids we are feeding today are the ones inheriting this world - and it is our responsibility to do our part. It is why our team sought out a partner like Vericool; we wanted to ensure our deliveries were safe, sustainable, and environmentally-friendly. With Vericool, our baby food deliveries will give consumers the ease and convenience of a meal delivery service, without the worry of creating additional waste.”
