Company Overview Visit pactiv.com website
Pactiv is the company that offers the widest range of disposable tableware, paper goods, and hot cups. The recent buyout by Pactiv ensures the sustainability of this American family business through what could be considered an uncertain time for its competitors.
The world-famous brand was started in 1960 on Montelago Boulevard in Lake Forest California near Los Angeles. It has since become a large corporation spread throughout America with 31 manufacturing facilities on 4 continents.
Pactiv Corp was founded in 1971 by two men, Joseph McKeen and William Hickey who met when working together at a company specializing in corrugated boards. Their plan was to create products for packaging which would revolutionize their industry. They quickly moved from corrugated boxes into packaging for food and paper goods.
Pactiv's brand soon became the name to call when in need of disposable plates, cups, silverware and take away containers. It was easy for people to recognize the brand that had become part of their daily lives. The company has been able to expand its reach throughout America and across the world because of this recognition and high-quality products offered at an affordable price.
