As a company we are constantly looking at how we can help protect the environment, from reducing our carbon footprint by hiring local staff who live within walking distance of our factory to improving our packaging to ensure it is either compostable or recyclable.
Whilst some of our packaging already meets this ideal, such as our pizza boxes which are made from 75% recycled material and are fully recyclable after use (please click here to read about our current recycling commitments), we are keen to explore how we can also reduce the amount of plastic we use to help keep our chocolates fresh and free from external contamination.
Of course, it’s something that can take a little while to implement, and a lot of research is needed to avoid compromising the end products.
So, last week we tootled off to the Packaging Innovations Birmingham trade show at the NEC, to help see what the packaging industry can do to help us achieve our goals.
Fortunately, there are so many companies now trying to help packaging to go in this direction, it was great to see how these could be integrated into our business and we came away with lots of ideas, and arms full of samples!
From compostable food grade bags through to reusable little tins, we were surprised at just how many different sustainable packaging solutions were on offer.
So, keep your eyes peeled for some packaging updates over the next few months, as we are committed to playing our part in saving the planet for future generations to come.
