FORT WORTH, Texas (Dec. 3, 2009) -- Just in time for the busy holiday season, Renfro Foods, makers of Mrs. Renfro's gourmet salsas, is now using a redesigned, eco-friendly insert in the shipping of its gift boxes, which holds four jars of Mrs. Renfro's products.

Mrs. Renfro's gourmet salsas will now be protected by a 200# doublewall kraft corrugated insert, provided by Harris Packaging Corporation, that is made of 30% recycled fibers, is 100% recyclable and is a sustainable resource. Products were previously protected by an expanded styrofoam block.

"It is important to us that we do what we can to leave a smaller footprint on the environment," said Doug Renfro, president of Renfro Foods. "Styrofoam takes an incredibly long time to break down in the environment. We're proud to be able to provide sustainable packaging for our product shipments."
