Company History


Our History

In 2007, Evergreen Packaging was formed when three companies with superior expertise in gable top carton manufacturing, forming, filling and sealing combined into a single entity. Those companies were originally known as International Paper Beverage Packaging Division, Blue Ridge Paper Products, and Cherry-Burrell.

Operations for Pactiv began in 1959, when Central Fiber, American Boxboard, and Ohio Boxboard merged to form Packaging Corporation of America, operating paper mills that exclusively produced cardboard boxes. During the next six decades the company undertook a number of acquisitions, creating a diversified portfolio of products to better meet the changing needs of customers. During this time, the company’s ownership and name changed several times, with Pactiv in use since 1999.

Until 2020, Pactiv and Evergreen Packaging were part of Reynolds Group Holdings Limited, owned by the Rank Group Limited. The two companies came together as part of our public offering under the name Pactiv Evergreen

Pactiv Evergreen trades on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange under the symbol: PTVE.

The Company is on an exciting journey towards excellence and long-term growth.
