Eco Packaging

No Mean Feat...

Shipping frozen food is no mean feat. And making sure that everything is recycled, recyclable and generally good for the planet didn’t make it an easy task. But we’ve finally got it sussed!

We start with a cardboard box, some of which may be reused from our suppliers. So if you get a branded box delivered don’t panic. We’re recycling and reusing where possible.

Magic fluff...

The boxes are then lined with the magic fluff. Which is actually insulation made from recycled plastic bottles. Crazy huh! But plastic bottles can only be recycled a limited amount of times before they end up in landfill, or worse, in our oceans. So we’ve found someone who turns these into insulation which works perfectly for our needs. See FAQ’s for more information.

no one wants fluffy products...

Next, we line the fluff with brown paper. This is to keep all your products safe. Otherwise, the fluff gets wet from the ice rendering it useless, and it gets frozen to the products. No one wants fluffy products.

Dry Ice Sheets...

Lastly, we fill the box with your order (thank you, you’re amazing) and place dry ice sheets on the top. These are -80 so perfect for keeping the products frozen. By the time it gets to you this will have sublimated (fancy huh! – it just means evaporated, or disappeared, we’re not sure!) but you will probably just have empty bags which can be recycled, please.

next day delivery...

The boxes are then sealed and sent to you next day delivery by our carbon neutral delivery partner. It may seem like a lot of packaging, but one van delivering 30 parcels is much better than 30 cars driving to the shop. And you don’t even have to leave your house!
