We care about the environment and have maximised our usage of reusable, recyclable and compostable packaging materials.
Cardboard: Widely recycled
Paper: Widely recycled.
PLA: (polylactic acid) the food packaging of the future.
A non toxic, plant based compostable bioplastic which is renewable and produces lower carbon emissions in manufacture than oil based plastics.
Compostable packaging needs to be in composting conditions in order to compost. Industrial composting creates the perfect balance of microbes, moisture and warmth, so that compostable packaging can be included in food waste recycling. Home composting conditions vary with the skill of the householder, so we don’t make any claims there, but there have been successful trials using hot compost bins.
By choosing compostables, foodservice businesses can actively drive changes in UK recycling. The more compostables there are in use, the more we can work with the waste sector to extend collections UK-wide.
