We are committed to minimise our impact on the environment and to help you to minimise your household waste, whilst ensuring our products continue to consistently taste great.
As part of this, we are actively working to reduce the amount of packaging we use.
The plastic film we currently use to wrap most of our cheese is made up of a number of different layers. These ensure the cheese doesn’t become contaminated before you open it, has a good best before date and stays fresher for longer, thereby helping to reduce food waste.
As a result of these layers, this packaging is not currently widely recyclable and there are presently no recyclable materials that deliver these levels of food protection, quality and safety.
We are on a mission to make all of our packaging recyclable by 2022.
You can now recycle your flexible plastic cheese packaging through The Cheese Packaging Recycling Programme. More details can be found here.
We are also working closely with WRAP, a leading non-governmental organisation, and are signatories of their flagship Courtauld Commitment 2025, a voluntary agreement that brings together organisations across the food industry to make food and drink production and consumption more sustainable.
