Saluting Innovation @ Bush Brothers

Saluting Innovation at Bush Brothers and Company for using sustainable food packaging that benefits the global environment. Bush Brothers and Company is a private family-owned company founded in 1908, producing a large variety of canned beans. Their sustainable food packaging features lighter cans in order to reduce shipping weight to keep fuel cost low. The steel can has the highest recycling rate of any food container in North America. Each can that the organization uses is 100% recyclable and created from a 25% recycled content. By using recycled cans, Bush Brothers reduces the energy required for can production by 74%, compared to virgin materials. We salute Bush Brothers and Company for their process improvement and continued effort to innovate food packaging while creating a sustainable environment.
