Aldi to trial fully recyclable sandwich packaging

Aldi is to introduce fully recyclable sandwich packaging as part of a trial with its supplier Greencore.

The supermarket is piloting a new sandwich box made from recyclable cardboard with a paper-lined film, rather than the plastic equivalent.

Aldi said the new packaging does not impact shelf life and will be trialled on two sandwich products across a number of stores from September.

Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi UK, said: “We are looking at every product we sell to see if there are ways we can remove plastic packaging or replace it with recyclable alternatives. The new sandwich packaging maintains the shelf life of the products, while allowing customers to easily recycle the packaging. Food to go is one of our most popular categories and we are confident this initiative will be well received by our customers.”

If the initiative were to be introduced across all of the retailer’s sandwiches, Aldi said this would remove 23.8 million pieces of unrecyclable plastic and 29.8 tonnes of single-use plastic each year.
