OTEP Compostable Snack Bags

Frito-Lay is already making significant advancements in this area through their brand Off The Eaten Path, a line of light and airy snacks made with real wholesome veggies. Off the Eaten Path launched industrially compostable bags this past Fall. The bags are available at Whole Foods Market and select retailers and are an example of PepsiCo's investments in breakthrough food packaging technology and the overall pep+ goal to design 100% of its packaging to be recyclable, compostable, biodegradable or reusable across their portfolio by 2025. Producing the materials used for these bags creates approximately 60 percent lower GHG emissions than traditional packaging and the technology may be licensed to other companies at no cost to further the use across the consumer-packaged goods industry.
