Offering healthy and sustainable choices

Addressing plastic within our range

Thanks to our new Sustainable Packaging Manager,

the task of reducing plastics in our range is now

business as usual, and gets the specialist knowledge

and time devoted to it that it deserves. Achievements

since our last report include:

We continue to remove single-use plastics (SUPs)

from our own brand (OB) range of products By the

end of 2020, we will have removed PVC and

polystyrene packaging from our own brand products,

and will have removed plastic straws and stirrers from

our product range We continue to provide a recycling

food2go packaging guide to help customers make

informed choices Swapping black plastics for NIR

(Near Infrared) detectable colours, making recycling

easier Everyday Favourites sauce jars - changing

black lids to white generates a saving of 7,630kg of

black plastic per year.

Working with suppliers to reduce plastic

packaging

We have been working with some of our

suppliers to look at how we can reduce the

plastic content of some of our own brand

packaging.

Several of these suppliers have already made

commitments to effect changes that will, in the

future, yield substantial reductions in plastic.

So far, we estimate that these commitments

have the potential to reduce plastic by over

46,000 kg per year.

We have identified a further 187,000 kg of

plastic savings in our top 100 lines that contain

plastic packaging, through reduction or

replacement with alternative materials. We will

be working hard with our suppliers to fulfil the

potential of these savings during 2021.
