As more consumers become concerned with the staggering amount of plastic in our landfills and oceans, Greencore Group is helping to reduce plastic associated with sandwiches. The brand recently debuted a new 00% fiber-based, plastic-free recyclable sandwich skillet in supermarkets across the UK. The packaging was created in conjunction with ProAmpac and offers moisture resistance to provide the same shelf life as traditional skillets.
Andy Wright, head of sustainability at Greencore, comments: “Consumers are increasingly aware not just of the importance of their own health but also of the impact their food has on the health of the planet. Developing a fully recyclable sandwich skillet is one of the key ways we can reduce waste and help our customers do their bit to protect the environment."
