Packaged to do the world of good
Not all raw food packaging is created equal. A huge part of our ethos as a company (and as human beings) is our commitment to – and somewhat obsession with – using sustainable & renewable resources. Introducing our completely compostable, plastic free raw food packaging.
Our minces are packaged in bagasse, which is made from sugarcane pulp, a byproduct of the sugar industry. It is totally natural, food safe & confirmed as GMO free – It’s a completely sustainable and renewable resource. We wrap each one in a beautiful FSC certified cardboard sleeve printed in vegetable inks.
Not just on some of the range, on all the range.
Our pretty nifty looking sleeves are printed on FSC certified sustainable card in vegetable based inks. Think this sounds expensive? It’s not – due to us designing and producing all our own artwork in house and the clever way in which they are printed to reduce material wastage, the sleeves come in at just a few pence each. They’re essential to keep our bagasse tubs securely closed, so not just a pretty face but a key component which allows us to use fully compostable packaging.
You can recycle our tubs and sleeves, stick them in your compost or even just in the regular bin. The key point with our tubs is that they are fully compostable, so wherever they end up they’ll break down within a few weeks. Plastic on the other hand will sit there virtually forever, and takes a lot more energy to manufacture in the first place.
We pride ourselves on meticulously labelling our products to an unbeatable standard in transparency, and just plain helpfulness. Full percentage breakdown of ingredients, nutritional analysis (from some boffins in a lab just down the road) and comprehensive meat/bone/offal content.
packed in wool, naturally
In 2018 we took the bold step of packing all orders in natural wool insulation, rather than pretty nasty polystyrene, and we’ve never looked back. The liners are filled with 100% natural virgin sheep wool, inside a recyclable, food grade wrapper so that they can be reused, cutting down on waste altogether.
And about that – we have a simple and incredibly popular returns scheme where you can bag yourself some free credit for helping us to reuse them. It costs you absolutely nothing, is quick and easy and saves precious resources from the planet. Win win win.
clean, convenient, easy
As well as being good for the earth our tubs are good for your sanity too. Just store them in the freezer, defrost them in the fridge and serve as required. No mess, no having to use another container to store what’s left.
it’s what’s inside that counts
It would be pointless us banging on about how proud we are of our packaging, if the raw food inside wasn’t even more special. Read more about how we source our ingredients and our ethics here.
