At HelloFresh, we’re very mindful of the sustainability of packaging used and sent out to customers. We’re continuously looking at how we can reduce waste as a business while ensuring our food is in the best condition possible. We always aim to use packaging that contains recycled materials, as well as packaging that can, where possible, be recycled in order to reduce our footprint and impact on the environment.
Packaging improvements have always been a priority to our operations teams around the world and the balance we always strive for is between the amount of packaging and the need to maintain food quality and safety (and thereby reduce food waste).
We have introduced the use of OPRL (on packet recycling labels) on a lot of our packaging, which will tell you exactly what can and can't be recycled. The best way to tell is to ask your local council.
