The Makers of the PLANTERS® Brand Elevates Snacking With New Packaging Redesign for PLANTERS® Dry Roasted Peanuts


Chicago, Ill.

Improved peanut-shaped packaging made with 8% less plastic than our prior 16-ounce bottle to save up to 220 tons of plastic1

The iconic snack you know and love from America’s #1 Selling Peanut Brand2 has a new, improved look and utilizes less plastic1! The makers of the PLANTERS® snack nut brand are introducing peanut-shaped, flavor-forward packaging for PLANTERS® Dry Roasted Peanuts, now on shelves nationwide.

“Our new packaging allows us to truly stand out with a unique ‘shell’ that is just as premium and satisfying as the delicious PLANTERS® Dry Roasted Peanuts housed within,” said Allie Abney, Associate Brand Manager. “Now snack lovers can enjoy their favorite peanuts in an even better, crave-worthy bottle that puts flavor in the spotlight.”

The new 16-ounce bottles use 8% less plastic than previous packaging, which saves an estimated 220 tons of plastic1. Like the small but mighty peanut, small changes like reduced plastic can help make a big impact. This packaging update is part of ongoing efforts by PLANTERS® brand parent company Hormel Foods, whose packaging team’s sustainability initiatives resulted in more than 727,000 pounds in savings last year alone3.

Shoppers can find the new 16-ounce bottles at grocery stores nationwide in PLANTERS® Dry Roasted Peanuts varieties. The new packaging will be supported with in-store displays, online advertising and social media.
