Takeaway Packaging recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. Our group of companies are committed to reducing our environmental impact and are continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our strategy and operating methods.
Our approach to takeaway packaging is changing . . .
Over the last few years, it has become more apparent that we need to consider and find ways of ensuring that the disposable ‘one use’ packaging we supply is more environmentally friendly. There are many misconceptions, due to the way packaging is often marked, that an item is recyclable, when in fact, it needs to be sent to a specialist facility.
Takeaway Packaging actively encourage customers to change their standard food packaging by offering alternatives that are recyclable, compostable or biodegradable.
We endeavour to
• Always offer our customers an alternative, environmentally friendly product
• Inform our customers of new developments and options available
• Use materials from sustainable sources
By 2020, we aim to convert all our existing customers to biodegradable and compostable food and drink packaging. We’d also like to take the opportunity to invite anyone thinking about switching to compostable products to get in touch with us for a full consultation.
