Biodegradable bags next on the plate for Field Fare

Field Fare bag on scale

The big supermarkets are gradually making steps to reduce plastic waste, but Field Fare says it's been doing that for 40 years – and has plans to introduce biodegradable bags this summer.

Field Fare supplies the frozen scoop-your-own produce – things like fruit, vegetables and baked goods – you see in farm shops, so you can bring your own bags or containers and only buy as much as you need. But it's also working on biodegradable bags for these frozen products, to then be replaced by compostable bags, it says.

"Shockingly, a fifth of household waste is packaging – that's five million tonnes of packaging in the UK every year – so it is great news that retailers and producers are finally starting to rally," comments Field Fare MD, Karen Deans.
