We rethink packaging

We rethink packaging

Unlike a traditional supermarket supply chain, we source ingredients directly from the producer. This shorter supply chain means we avoid packaging and repackaging along the way. We also use innovative technology to minimise the amount of packaging in each order, whilst ensuring your ingredients stay fresh all the way to your doorstep.
Our latest packaging innovations

Our latest packaging innovations

Our sustainability teams around the world are constantly developing innovative ways to reduce and optimise our packaging. Every small improvement counts and here are some of our most impactful initiatives we have worked on so far:

  • We've switched to fully recyclable and paper sachets for dry ingredients like pasta and grains.
  • We've developed an algorithm that determines the optimal amount of packaging for each unique order, helping us avoid unnecessary packaging.
  • We've introduced more recyclable packaging sauce sachets.

    Look out for more innovations in 2022, including packaging made from recycled materials and more paper-based pouches.

New Paper Packaging

We’ve switched from plastic to paper for rice and grains packaging. In 2022, more dried pasta and spices will be packaged in paper, too. Discard paper packets and sachets in the paper recycling bin.

Plastic Packaging

There are occasions where we have to use plastic in our packaging to ensure that food arrives safely to your door. We use vacuum packs to reduce food waste, as they keep your meat products safe and fresh for longer. Although they use less plastic than traditional meat packaging, our vacuum packs are not recyclable, so please discard them in the general waste bin.
