Aldi introduces cardboard packaging across steak range in Scotland

The Aldi supermarket chain is rolling out cardboard packaging across its entire beef steak range in all 95 Scottish stores following a successful trial in Wales and the north west and south east of England.  

From this month, the new packaging is being introduced on all 12 of the supermarket’s beef steak products.

Aldi said the move will save around 80 tonnes of plastic a year in ScotlandThe cardboard packaging is recyclable, once the protective film has been removed, and is sourced from sustainably-managed forests.  

Luke Peech managing director of corporate responsibility at Aldi UK, said: “Reducing our plastic footprint is a fundamental area of focus for us as a business, and we’re constantly reviewing the products we offer to see where this is possible.  

“It can be challenging to balance tackling food waste with the need to reduce the amount of plastic we use, particularly with fresh meat. A successful trial has shown us that this new packaging enables us to do both.”
