Recycle your snack packets and raise money for charity!

We all know that snack bags can be a problem when it comes to recycling.  Though they keep our snacks fresh and delicious, the nature of the plastic/foil film means you can’t yet put them in your normal domestic recycling stream. 

That’s why we’ve put together our pacKPromise programme which aims to make all our plastic film packaging 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.  But until we can achieve this, we’ve partnered with recycling company TerraCycle® to create a special recycling stream for all your crisps, snacks, nuts, popcorn and pretzels packets.
