When we founded graze in 2008 we wanted to reimagine the world of snacking, to create snacks that do you good and taste great. We believed (and still do) that being kind to the planet is part of that mission.
We’ve achieved a fair amount (raising £140k for the graze school of farming in Uganda was a highlight), but we’ve still got lots to do, even if it’s not always easy to know the best direction.
That’s why we’re always putting in measures to help us achieve our eco-friendly ambitions, from inventing new packaging that helps get our snacks to grazers, to choosing the best places to get our ingredients.
Over the last decade we’ve set ourselves new eco-friendly goals, chosen to make a positive difference to the planet we snack on.
We've designed our packaging to take great care of your snacks and carefully picked materials that are sensitive to the environment, but we're always looking to improve.
We’re currently working on significantly reducing the thickness of our plastic punnets. This is called lightweighting and means we use less plastic in the process. We'll also be increasing the use of readily recyclable mono-polymer plastics in our supply chain.
For each plan our priority is going to be finding alternative packaging materials with minimum environmental impact, whilst still protecting our snacks and keeping them as fresh as possible as they travel around the country.
We don’t take these commitments lightly, and will be researching and testing new materials thoroughly before introducing them. Watch this space!
