Packaging improvement

Using as little plastic packaging as possible

We are working tirelessly to reduce plastic packaging, both in distribution and by re-engineering our snack packs to cut the amount of plastic film they need.

We have already removed around 1,100 tonnes of plastic packaging on our snack brands since 2014, which is an overall reduction of 15% (or the equivalent weight of around 90 double decker buses!). Our approach also ensures that all our plastic packaging is fit for purpose and optimised to maintain product quality. This includes cutting plastic film on Hula Hoops, McCoy’s, Popchips, Tyrrell’s, Pom-Bear, Space Raiders, Nik Naks, Roysters, Discos and Frisps.

Contributing to targets

  • Using as little plastic packaging as possible
  • Aim for 100% of what we do use to be recyclable
  • Working with the Flexible Plastics Fund to support investment in recycling infrastructure
  • Sourcing recycled content as it becomes commercially available
