OUR PACKAGING

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.

Ink-redible

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.

ALL ORDERS NOW PACKED IN WOOL!

NO. MORE. POLYSTYRENE.
We have been developing this for a while and we are now thrilled to say that we have taken the bold step of packing every single order in natural wool insulation, rather than pretty nasty polystyrene, and at no extra charge to you whatsoever. It has been a bugbear of ours for quite some time that our beautiful biodegradable packaging had to be delivered in polystyrene to keep it cool, so we are so excited to finally be able to roll this out. 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.

REUSE FOR FREE STUFF!

What’s more we also have a returns scheme where you can bag yourself some free credit for helping us to reuse them! Click here for the info.
