Spelt brand moves to compostable packaging

Sharpham Park has announced its British spelt brand has moved its pasta range into home compostable packaging.
Made in the UK by an artisan Italian pasta maker using Sharpham Park’s award-winning spelt flour, the new pasta is ideal for vegans and those following a plant-based diet. The first three shapes in the range are Gigli Rigati, Casarecce and Conchiglie.
Founder, Roger Saul, commented: “We’re delighted to be launching this pasta as it’s taken us a long time to work out the best way to create a delicious tasting premium spelt pasta in an ethical and sustainable manner. Having the pasta manufactured in the UK by an Italian pasta maker has ensured our food miles are as low as possible. We’re delighted to be launching our home compostable packaging, which we believe is the way forward for food packaging and one which we will be utilising throughout our range in 2020.”

Lucy Bee’s Organic Coconut Water is naturally refreshing and hydrating with a subtle coconut flavour – it is not from concentrate and has no added sugar. It’s a good source of potassium and contains electrolytes too.

It is from the Philippines where the palms grow in agroforestry. Fair Trade is at the foundation of all that we do at Lucy Bee, and the premiums ensure:

  • No exploitation of workers
  • Funds to support education
  • Funds for a feeding programme for undernourished children
  • Projects such as coconut planting initiatives
  • Monkeys do not pick the coconuts used in this water

Our Coconut Water is great to:

  • Drink as it comes – it’s like drinking it straight from the coconut!
  • Use as a staple in your smoothies
  • Rehydrate after the gym

Goodbye Plastic…Hello Eco-Friendly Product Packaging

Promotion

Introducing Good Health Naturally’s new product packaging range – healthy for you and the planet.

As the world becomes ever more conscious of its eco-footprint, it’s the responsibility of companies to play their part by reducing their use of plastic packaging.

In 2020, Good Health Naturally has made an environmental pledge to only use glass, aluminium and bio-based recyclable plastic packaging across their product lines. Even with the current global restrictions we are faced with, they are continuing to make their move to Eco-Friendly Product Packaging, with a major rebranding of the entire product range at the same time.

Where possible, recyclable glass bottles with metal caps will replace previous packaging in all products. Other products like their serrapeptase enzyme range, will be sold in bio-based recyclable plastic packaging. This is a sustainable alternative made by producing biobased HDPE and LDPE from green polyethylene, using waste collected from the sugar cane industry that doesn’t require a food resource. This makes the packaging 100 per cent ethical and sustainable.

There will also be the introduction of aluminium packaging for some of the liposomal products which requires up to 95% less energy to recycle and thereby avoids corresponding emissions, including greenhouse gases. Also, nearly 75% of all aluminium ever produced is still in use today!

Revamping the product lines will happen in stages, with some new packaging updates and labels already on the shelves, and the rest occurring as stock is reordered throughout 2020 and into 2021.
