Eco-friendly Packaging

Is your food packaging solution vegan friendly?

3 mins

As retail giants, restaurants, and entrepreneurs continue to make things easier for people looking to indulge in a plant-based diet, more and more will consider making the switch.

In fact, veganism in the UK is now at an all-time high.

A record half a million Brits signed up to Veganuary in 2021, Deliveroo’s vegan orders spiked by 163% in 2020, and 7.2 million British adults currently follow a meat-free diet.

But what do these numbers mean? Well, with a growing number of people following veganism, it’s more than just food alternatives that need attention. It goes beyond what’s being consumed. Many are now actively reducing the number of animal-based products they buy.

In short, veganism is seen as a lifestyle change that involves many sectors.

One of these sectors involve vegan-friendly packaging. So, as an innovative packaging specialist leading the market, we’re here to explore this in further detail.

The rise of vegan friendly food packaging

As you can imagine, these consumers now expect their food packaging to be vegan too, although many adhesives used in packaging are often made from animal-based gelatine. Because of this, businesses are now looking to incorporate vegan-friendly food packaging that caters for this growing audience.

But has your business thought about vegan friendly food packaging?

To help our customers across the UK tap into the benefits of vegan packaging, we’ve launched a brand-new Vegan Thermal Liner, specifically designed for fresh and frozen food deliveries.
