Sleaford Quality Foods (SQF) has reported that the company will change the colour of its packaging from black to white.
The switch will support packaging sustainability; black plastics are not readily recyclable due to issues with automated sorting systems.
In February this year, SQF pledged to ensure all company packaging would be recyclable or compostable by 2022.
Richard Oke, marketing manager at SQF, said: “We are in the process of removing all black plastic from our packaging range. White plastic is more environmentally friendly than black and can be more easily sorted for recycling by large machinery.”
The first products to use the new packaging will be gravy, soups, bouillons and salt.
Production is scheduled to start in May, with first customer deliveries in early June.
