Aldi to roll out cardboard packaging across steak range
Aldi has said it will be rolling out cardboard packaging across its entire steak range from next month.
Using materials sourced from responsibly managed forests, the new packaging will be applied to 15 steak products in 890 stores and will save around 1,100 tonnes of plastic each year.
The move follows a successful trial in Aldi stores in parts of Wales and in the North West and South East of England.
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.”
Back in July, Aldi committed to removing two billion single items of plastic by 2025.
