Scotty Brand said it introduced a raft of plastic-saving measures across its range to help protect the environment in September 2019 which included thinner, recyclable plastic on its 2kg potato bags, Baby Potato bags and Chippy Chip packs and removing trays inside its Baking Potato packs.
In total, these steps have seen Scotty Brand save 26,890kg of plastic. The plastic savings are part of a wider initiative to protect the environment with parent company Albert Bartlett also introducing reduced thickness, recyclable bags in a move which has seen a saving of 92 tonnes of plastic across the business.
The Airdrie-based business, which works with producers around Scotland, currently places prominent recycling messaging on the front of its bags and packs.
