Is it necessary?
Plastic packaging is used in the food supply chain because it supports the safe distribution of food
over long distances and minimises food waste by keeping food fresh for longer.
However has this just become an industry habit and can they reduce the amount they use, change their practices or use an alternative?
If you want to see change you can write to the supermarket head offices requesting change or shop in your local greengrocers, retailers, farm shops or market.
We have Edwards Fresh Fruit and Veg in Wokingham Market, Greys Farm, Phil’s Good Food,
Fletchers at Ashridge Garden Centre or there are national boxed delivery services for farm grown
fruit & veg that all come without plastic. We prefer to #shoplocal and support the businesses here in Wokingham, but the choice is yours.
