#7. McCormick’s recipe for packaging that’s more sustainable

In a career rife with packaging innovations—including the highly acclaimed dual-function Heinz Dip & Squeeze ketchup package—Michael Okoroafor sets a high bar. Now, as vp, global sustainability & packaging innovation at McCormick & Co., he gives senior technical editor Rick Lingle an exclusive interview to outline how the company plans to achieve its carbon reduction goals.

McCormick & Co. has already made good progress. Okoroafor cites three recent projects and measures their impact.
