PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, iconic household staple, Shake ‘N Bake, ushers in a new era for its signature packaging, announcing the removal of the plastic ‘shaker’ bag from its products. Effective across its full product portfolio, this is the brand’s first step towards a more sustainable future – and an easy way for fans to make a difference, as 73% of consumers say they want to use less plastic, but don’t know how.1
In place of the ‘shaker’ bag, fans are encouraged to shake using a reusable container as the vessel for adding that extra layer of crunch to their favorite recipes. In fact, this simple change to families’ mealtime routines is helping eliminate 900,000 pounds of plastic waste – equivalent to the weight of more than 270 mid-size cars.
“As a family staple for over 50 years, we are proud to evolve with the world around us, ushering in a new effort to help our brand – and our fans – take steps toward a more sustainable future,” said Brianna Galvin, Brand Manager, Shake ‘N Bake. “While the ‘shaker’ bag is an important part of our legacy, our product is just as effective and delicious without the plastic waste, and we are excited for all the good to come from this simple, yet effective packaging change.”
Shake ‘N Bake’s packaging update comes during a time of continued growth. The brand has consistently maintained its spot as the market leader, experiencing a steady double-digit growth of 10.1 percent since 2019.2
Shake ‘N Bake’s sustainability efforts contribute to The Kraft Heinz Company’s broader Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, designed to prioritize the issues that matter most to the Company’s business and stakeholders. Specifically, this works towards a goal to make 100% of our packaging recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025.
