We are committed to using sustainable and renewable resources wherever we can, introducing our plastic free raw food packaging
When we first started raw feeding one of the biggest bug bears we had was the amount of plastic we produced with 2 big hungry dogs and 2 cats to satisfy! Therefore when we began to plan the launch of our very own raw food top of the list of ‘what not to do’ was using plastic tubs.
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 (as is the requirement of our Organic certification) – It’s a completely sustainable and renewable resource.
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 biodegradable, 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.
Our pretty nifty looking sleeves are printed on sustainably sourced 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 biodegradable packaging.
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 whats 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.
Still searching for packaging perfection
We may have better eco credentials than most, but we’re still working on a couple of things. Our chunks still come in vacuum sealed plastic bags, as there is currently no feasible hygienic alternative. We also use insulated polystyrene boxes to transport our courier orders. It’s of utmost importance that your order reaches you in tip top condition, and frustratingly there is no viable alternative to keep it cool at present. At the moment it’s a necessary evil, but we are currently rolling out a scheme where you can return your boxes to your nearest stockist who will reuse them or return them to us. We are constantly thinking, exploring and researching alternatives in this area and have a few things in development. Leave this one with us.
