Supermarket plastic

Following yesterday’s announcement from the Prime Minister, Britain’s supermarkets are heading for a plastic-free future, but what does this mean for the food industry?

With hundreds of brands pledging to reduce their plastic packaging, the way we buy our food and household goods will be transformed.

What impact will this have?

Without disposable plastic packaging, food manufacturers will have to look towards alternative ways of containing and labelling goods. Whether this is swapping a polystyrene pizza tray to a cardboard one, or offering re-fillable container for sauces, supermarkets are making big plans to improve their waste!

Smylies offer labelling and documentation services to ensure that all food products that we export are in keeping with the laws and legislations of the destination country. As more and more countries take steps to reduce packaging, we can offer advice and information to help you stay within the food packaging legislation.
