Over the years we’ve been making changes to our packaging to reflect the sustainability values we have as a business.
From our Super Thick pots being made from 100% recycled plastic, to offering a recycling service via Enval for recycling our Little Yeos pouches, recycling is always front of mind. We’ve also switched our cream packaging to bottles so that they’re 100% recyclable, and we’re not stopping there!
We’re saying bye bye to plastic lids across our 350g and 450g tubs. Making this small change will remove a huge 145 tonnes of plastic a year – that’s the equivalent of 188 Friesian cows, 24 African elephants or 17 tractors … You can now pick up our Greek Style yogurt range and in fact, all our 350g and 450g yogurt flavours in-store without their plastic clip lids on, helping reduce our plastic footprint even further.
That being said, we don’t want to worry you with woes on yogurt freshness. Which is why we’ve popped together our tops tips on how to get the most from your pot.
You may be wondering whether this change will affect the freshness of our delicious yogurt, which is why we’ve put together this handy guide. Read on to find out our top storage tips!
Skip the clingfilm and instead use a reusable alternative to cover your yogurt pots. Beeswax wraps are an eco-friendly storage solution that can be moulded to fit different container sizes, perfect for yogurt pots!
Re-use Old Lids
We encouraged all our customers to save the clip lid before it was ditched, make sure to keep yours save for endless re-use.
A simple storage solution would be to decant the yogurt into a spare Tupperware container. Make sure the lid has a tight seal and it’ll be good to go! If you find yourself with just a small amount of yogurt left, try our ‘Dollop of Yogurt’ recipes to make sure you’re using up every last tasty drop!
In the fridge
As well as covering your yogurt pot, there are other things you can do in your fridge to keep your yogurt fresher for longer. Store yogurt at the back of the fridge where it’s colder, and make sure your fridge is set to 4°C or below.
