New egg packaging helps to reduce food waste


Over the last eight weeks we have been trialling a new type of plastic egg packaging in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The packaging will help to reduce waste as any seepage resulting from broken eggs is contained within a single pack and does not damage those beneath it.
The packgaging is recyclable and is made from old plastic bottles.
Emma Marsh, Head of the Love Food Hate Waste campaign, said: “We’re always very pleased to see packaging innovations that save perfectly good food from going to waste. Eggs are such a versatile ingredient and can bring together so many ingredients to make a tasty dish so it’s great to see that more will be reaching the homes of shoppers who can make the most them.
"The results of the trial have been very positive and we hope to be able to roll out the packaging nationwide by the end of the year."
