By switching to Borders Biscuits, we now have another supplier who only uses 100% recycled plastic packaging. Up until now, we had stocked biscuits with non-recyclable wrapping and trays. It had been a major challenge to find good quality biscuits without plastic packaging that could meet our requirements but after carefully researching alternative suppliers, we discovered Border Biscuits could deliver in bulk with packaging that is 100% recyclable.
We were also impressed by Border's commitment to doing good in their local community, where 10% of their profits are donated to local charities and causes in Lanark, Scotland. In addition, it has over 40 delicious biscuit recipes and had been recognised at the 2018 Great Taste Awards as one of the nation's best biscuits!
We have replaced all our PET plastic film wrap with lower impact plant-based and compostable PLA film.
We have reduced our plastic consumption by using an environmentally friendly detergent supplier.
