This week is National Recycling Week, and as a sustainable initiative, this is something that is obviously very close to our hearts.

We are always looking for ways to improve our recycling credentials. That’s why we’re part of the UK Plastics Pact – a collaboration of forward-thinking businesses with the aim of fundamentally changing the way plastic is consumed. As a collective, our goal is to inspire the following changes by 2025:

Cauldron Falafels and Sausages have been available in recyclable trays for many years, and we’re now delighted to say that now we’ve made further improvements to our packaging by introducing trays that are also made from 100% recycled plastic, completing the recycling chain.

Recycled packaging

It’s part of our goal to encourage shoppers to make more sustainable food choices by eating plant-based, and we recognise that these values should also be reflected in our packaging. These new trays are a small but significant change towards achieving our targets, and we’ll continue to innovate until every aspect of our packaging is 100% recyclable.

Our next step is to fix the flexible film lid on our trays – it’s the only bit of our packaging that can’t be recycled but keeps our food fresh and safe.

In the meantime, please support National Recycling Week and the fantastic work they’re doing to raise awareness of the importance of recycling.
