Tesco Communicates its Packaging Strategy and Guidelines for Suppliers

Tesco Launches Phase two of Remove, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle plan to suppliers.

Tesco has launched the second phase of its Remove, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle plan, which sets out four steps that will govern packaging design across all product categories.

      1. Remove all non-recyclable and hard to recycle material
      1. Where we can’t remove, reduce it to an absolute minimum, including excess packaging
      2. Explore new opportunities to reuse it, and if we can’t
      3. Ensure it is all recycled as part of a closed loop.

Since announcing its ambition in 2018 to remove hard-to-recycle materials, Tesco will have eliminated the hardest to recycle materials from own brand products by the end of 2019, by removing over 4,000 tonnes of materials from 8,000 lines.
