- Use as little as possible
Due to the specific nature of our products, the packaging materials we use are critical to ensuring food quality and preventing food waste. For example, potato crisps require a packaging material that provides a moisture barrier to prevent them from becoming soft; nuts need a material that provides an oxygen barrier which stops the nuts from becoming rancid. The types of material we currently use have been optimised to achieve this. Therefore, we focus on minimising the volume of packaging material we use for each product type without compromising taste or quality and are continually exploring opportunities to make further reductions.

This refers to all the water we use within our manufacturing processes as well as general consumption across our manufacturing sites
