Smithfield’s new Prime Fresh Delicatessen pre-packed lunchmeat line uses proprietary, minimalist packaging that is designed to look like the meat was just sliced at the deli counter. In addition to keeping the product fresher longer, it uses 31 percent less packaging than the conventional tubs that hold other pre-sliced deli meats. This provides a host of sustainability benefits such as fewer transportation miles (due to more product able to fit on trucks) and less waste sent to landfill.
