We’re creating a better future for consumer packaged goods by executing a bold agenda.
Championing Smart Regulation
We advocate for rational, informed, uniform regulatory frameworks that maintain affordability, promote choice and build consumer trust across the sectors we represent, from household products to food and beverage.
Enhancing Packaging Sustainability
The industry plays a crucial role in creating a more sustainable future by reducing packaging material, increasing recyclability and manufacturing with recycled content. We aim to leverage our expertise and innovations to galvanize stakeholders and drive needed solutions.
Creating Frictionless Supply Chains
We account for one-fifth of all freight shipping in the United States, making the CPG industry a key stakeholder – and expert voice – on supply chain issues. We work to remove barriers to providing American consumers the affordable products they rely on every day.
Building Trust in Consumer Packaged Goods
We promote our industry’s commitment to providing consumers with safe, trustworthy, reliable products and to sharing necessary information about these products, shaping a more informed, transparent environment.
