NEW 1KG POUCHES OUT NOW
We’re delighted to announce the start of an exciting new product development schedule with the roll-out of new 1kg fully recyclable pouches across our full range of natural sugars.
The new 1kg pouches are made from 100% recyclable low density polyethylene. This means they can be easily recycled through local council kerbside rubbish collections and at the majority of major supermarkets such as Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, The Co-op and Waitrose.
The new 1kg Silverbirch, Panela and Coconut Blossom pouches are now available on Amazon but will also be used to target independent retailers, delis, cafes, coffee shops and chefs working across the UK.
Making the right packaging choice
In our fight against the plastic destroying our ecosystems and against carbon, the choice of packaging for food manufacturers is vital but very complex and far from straight forward.
While paper often seems an obvious choice, many just aren't suited to carrying our sugars so at this stage, there just isn't a ‘perfect world’ solution.
Many paper options are still difficult to recycle and when you really delve into the subject area, paper packaging requires three times more energy, 17 times more water and there are 1.6 times more carbon dioxide emissions compared to LDPE. Millions and millions of trees also need to be cut down each year.
For these reasons, we have decided to go with LDPE but as a company will continue to review and assess the latest developments and technologies in this area.
It would be great to hear what you think so for more information or if you’re in foodservice and want to give them a try, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
