How sustainable are redcurrants?
Why use plastic packaging when cardboard can do the job? Cardboard provides the same protection the fruits need, but the material can be recycled. That's why we supply redcurrants in a cardboard shaker punnet. Just as sturdy, much more sustainable. And it not only reduces plastic use, but also CO2 emissions. The dimensions of the punnet means that 65% more fit on one pallet.
