Waitrose Overhauls Its Food Packages To Reduce Packaging Waste

May 2, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
British supermarket chain Waitrose announced it is trimming packaging by half over the next three years, compared to 2005. Three major changes to its product lines will help the retailer achieve its packaging goals, saving nearly 100 tons a year. The prepared meals line has been relaunched with narrower sleeves; aluminum trays are now lacquered to give an earthenware appearance for cooking and serving; and the snacks and sandwiches line has been relaunched with larger clear windows on sandwiches to allow better visibility.
