We help make today’s convenience-oriented lifestyle possible by making products that give people the freedom to eat and drink fresh food and beverages safely anytime and anywhere.

We are the largest manufacturer and distributor of fresh foodservice and food merchandising products and fresh beverage cartons in North America (as measured by revenue). We produce a broad range of on-trend and feature rich products that protect, package and display fresh food and beverages for consumers who want to eat or drink fresh, prepared or ready-to-eat food and beverages conveniently and with confidence. Consumers use our products every day in restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets, grocery stores and their homes and we estimate that our products are used by people in the United States approximately 5 billion times per week. We support consumers’ active, on-the-go lifestyle with a variety of products that are used daily by people who want to eat and drink fresh food and beverages on-the-go, take-out or at home. Our products range from food containers, plates and bowls, hot and cold cups, lids, wraps and cutlery to meat and poultry trays, egg cartons and reclosable fresh beverage cartons. Our products are made from a diverse range of substrates, including resins, bio-resins, plant and paper-based fiber and aluminum. We believe that the breadth of our product offering and our best-in-class technological and material engineering capabilities provide us with a competitive advantage by giving us the ability to offer or develop products to meet a broad range of customer needs and specifications. These capabilities are a part of the value proposition we offer our customers that help make us a “one-stop-shop” for customers with a wide range of fresh food and beverage packaging requirements. We believe our product development, material engineering and technology innovation initiatives enable us to commercialize new products that provide a consistent and meaningful contribution to both our product offering and revenue. Our objective is to generate 25% of our net revenues each year from products developed or re-engineered within the prior three years. We are a market leader in our industry. Approximately 80% of our total pro forma net revenues for 2019 were from products for which we held a #1, #2 or #3 U.S. market share position.

We supply our products to a broad and diversified mix of companies, including FSRs and QSRs, foodservice distributors, supermarkets, grocery and healthy eating retailers, other food stores, food and beverage producers, food packers and food processors. Based on management data, in 2019, we were the #1 supplier to many of our customers across our product categories in the aggregate, including four of the five largest foodservice distributors, eight of the ten largest supermarket chains, three of the four largest dairies, and the three largest QSR groups. We were also the #1, #2 or #3 packaging supplier to six of the eight largest meat and poultry processors. Our customers range from large blue-chip multinational companies to national and regional companies to small local businesses. We have developed strong and longstanding relationships with our customers. We have been supplying the vast majority of our customers for many years, and our relationships with our top ten customers average over 19 years. We have a diverse business with no single customer representing more than 10% of our pro forma net revenues for fiscal year 2019. We believe our strategic customer partnerships, which are built on our “one-stop-shop” product, service and value offering, differentiate us from our competitors. Sales contracts for our products are in many cases long-term and generally contain cost pass-through mechanisms for raw materials, and may contain pass-through mechanisms for freight and other variable costs that mitigate the impact of cost volatility on our profitability.
