Over the years we’ve been making changes to our packaging to reflect the sustainability values we have making organic dairy. From our Super Thick pots being made from 100% recycled plastic, to offering a recycling service via Enval for recycling our Little Yeos pouches, to switching our cream packaging to bottles so that they’re 100% recyclable. But we’re not stopping there! You can now pick up our Greek Style yogurt range in-store without their plastic clip lids on, helping reduce our plastic footprint even further.
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! We love the ones from The Beeswax Wrap Co
Re-use Old Lids
We’re phasing out removing our lids from our yogurt pots, so you can still find our lids on some of our other products. So why not reuse the lid from your Strawberry or Lemon Curd yogurt on our Greek Style range. You can also store the pot upside down as it gives the lid a tighter seal, keeping the yogurt fresher for longer.
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.
