Sustainability in packaging has never been more important. 

We’re committed  to “Remove, Reduce, Recycle, Renew & Re-use” in our operations.

Currently we are exploring the use of sheep’s wool in insulated packaging! Sheep’s wool is a sustainable and highly effective natural insulation material which has been designed and developed by Woolcool eco-friendly packaging products and packaging solutions, offering impressive performance and cost benefits.

Woolcool insulated packaging products help companies and consumers reduce, re-use and recycle packaging as set out by the Government and following guidelines by WRAP (Waste & Resource Action Programme).

The wool insulation is totally compostable and biodegradable, releasing valuable nitrates back into the soil.

The MDPE film used to enclose the fleece and the LDPE envelopes used for Woolcool pouches are recyclable at local authority waste depots.

The cardboard delivery boxes are produced using recycled material and are recyclable at local authority waste depots.

In most cases Woolcool products are suitable to be re-used several times.

At the end of its useful life as packaging, the insulation liners or felted wool can be re-used for a variety of purposes.

The spice poll, which was commissioned by UberEATS, also discovered that as a nation, six out of ten of us have a favourite curry house which we loyally buy from on a weekly basis.

And four out of ten usually opt for the same meal completely.

Tikka masala is the most popular curry dish.

Chicken remains our favourite meat choice with pilau rice on the side. The research also found the classic onion bhaji is our best-loved starter followed by samosas and sag aloo.
