Our Packaging

We are committed to following ethical practices wherever possible, be that in the restaurants, on Our Farm or in the production and packaging of our 'at home' meals. So, we are delighted to guide you through our eco-friendly packaging and give you some tips on how best to recycle each item.

Kraft brown food boxes 

Our carefully selected food boxes are made from sustainably sourced, renewable plant-based materials and are lined with a compostable grease-resistant lining. Because these boxes are mixed materials for food safety, they are only 100% compostable in a commercial environment. To do this, you will need to find a commercial compost facility near you. If this isn’t possible, these plant-based food boxes can go in your general waste. They will be incinerated, however because they are made from plants using renewable, lower carbon, recycled or reclaimed materials, fewer toxic gases will be produced and they will leave little residue.

Clear containers & pots 

Our plant starch (PLA) food containers are light but strong to protect your food as it makes its way to your kitchen. Made from a renewable plant-based material, these pots are sustainable and can be commercially composted. Like the brown food boxes, to do this, you will need to find a commercial compost facility near you or put in your general waste to be incinerated. For more information on this, please visit

Food pouches 

Because these 100% BPA free food pouches are not only required to contain food but are also used to heat some of your food, unfortunately, they are non-recyclable. These nifty little pouches are made to the highest quality to ensure they can withstand the high temperatures of boiling, steaming and microwaving to give you the perfect results you require at home. We are working on alternatives so that all our packaging is fully recyclable.

Gel packs 

Multitude of ways

Our ice packs can be recycled in a multitude of ways, from re-using in your home, donating to local food banks or simply recycling them. We've made a few suggestions of how to recycle and re-use them below:


Wipe down and re-freeze the packs, ready to use in a picnic bag or on your next fishing trip.


Freecycle is a global grassroots and entirely non-profit movement that enables individuals to give and receive products for free. Its mission is to reduce waste, save resources and ease the burden on landfills whilst building stronger and larger communities. For more information, please visit freecycle.


Contact your local food bank as they may be able to put these to good use to keep food donations cool.


Another inventive way to re-use these packs is to line the bottom and sides of your freezer with them. This will help keep the temperature of your freezer more consistent.


These gel packs are filled with non-toxic water-based salt solution, so simply defrost, cut open the bag and pour the contents down the drain using hot tap water to help dissolve the gel. Recycle the plastic according to your local recycling regulations.


Woolcool fleece lining

We are very proud to use Woolcool fleece lining to keep your food insulated and protected as it makes its way from our kitchen to your home. The fleece lining is made from sheep's wool that has been washed, scoured, then sealed in recyclable micro-perforated polyethylene wrap. The wool itself is biodegradable and breaks down easily to release nutrients into the soil so you can add it to your home compost. You can also be creative when it comes to re-using the wool, follow #letsboxclever for lots of inspirational tips and tricks.
