Delhaize America, parent company of Food Lion and Hannaford grocery retail chains, is the latest company to join How2Recycle. Delhaize America operates Food Lion grocery stores in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic and Hannaford grocery stores in the Northeast.

Delhaize will be using the How2Recycle label on all Nature’s Place branded items. Nature’s Place food and non-food products are free from over 120 artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and additives. The addition of the How2Recycle label will effectively communicate complete packaging recyclability information to customers. The label will be on Nature's Place products in stores starting in July, and customers can expect to see the How2Recycle label on additional Food Lion and Hannaford private brand products in the future.


“The How2Recycle label will provide great value to people who shop at Food Lion,” said Kelly Cramer, project manager. “Having the How2Recycle label on brands like Nature’s Place will help teach how people can recycle more, and how they can recycle properly. We are thrilled to have Delhaize on board.”
