We are working hard to reduce our environmental impact

Whether that’s working towards 100% recyclable packaging or introducing initiatives aimed at reducing food waste. We believe there’s always opportunity to do more.

Making more of our packaging

Cheese packaging isn’t like other packaging, & ours is designed to keep the nation’s favourite fresher for longer with its resealable edge. Making it recyclable is a technical challenge we’re working with a number of partners to solve, & while we’ve not cracked it yet, we are making progress. Find out below how we’re working with Terracycle® to provide an interim recycling solution

Wrap Logo

WRAP is a leading non-governmental organisation that joins companies from across the food industry to make food and drink production and consumption more sustainable. To help their efforts, we’ve pledged to support their Courtauld Commitment 2030 which has set a food waste reduction target for all companies involved.

The Cheese packaging Free Recyling Programme in partnership with Terracycle

In partnership with TerraCycle®, we’ve launched The Cheese Packaging Recycling Programme. It’s the UK’s first free and simple solution for customers looking to recycle their flexible cheese packaging plastic.

Search ‘Cheese Packaging Free Recycling Programme locations’ to find convenient drop-off locations near you. If you’ve looked and can’t find any, it might be worth starting a public drop-off location yourself to help out your neighbours and help us help the planet too.

Set up a drop-off loction
by following these steps

  1. Go to the TerraCycle® UK website:
  2. Create a TerraCycle® account.
  3. Find a public place to host your collection (with the prior consent of the person in charge of the place).
  4. Request to join the programme asa public drop-off location administrator by filling out the online form found in the ‘How it works’ section on the Cheese Packaging Free Recycling Programme page.

If you’re unable to set up a location, we recommend saving your flexible plastic cheese packaging until youtravel to an area that does have a public drop-off location.

Alternatively, once you’ve saved at least 10 packs of flexible cheese packaging, you can print a shipping label and send your waste to us.
