The 140g pots are produced by independent food packaging manufacturer PFF Packaging, using less plastic than equivalent PET packaging and more post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials, optimising the resources used and making the packaging easy to recycle.
 
PFF’s ‘IMPAC-T’ packaging is manufactured using a minimum of 50% PCR PET and up to 100% PCR card with any virgin board content sourced from certified sustainable forestry.

THE IMPAC-T process has been found to offer a 46% carbon footprint reduction compared to the current assembly system.
