American Packaging Corp. and The Wegman Family Charitable Foundation donated $2.2 million to RIT to establish the Center for Sustainable Packaging at the university. This is not the first time the organizations have collaborated with the university, as both have sponsored student product-design competitions, including a March 2012 event. The winning team from that event is Sumeet Deshpante, left, Tuan Tran, Marco Fesyuk, Christin Allesio, Simon Jones and Chen Guo Wei; they redesigned packaging for Wegmans barbecue sauce.
