Stalker notes that Tesco have been pushing their new packaging for avocados recently - as part of their effort to reduce food waste.
There’s also be tons of coverage in the media of the plastic problem. Last year in April, Tesco said it was trialling new packaging for its fresh mushroom portfolio - “in order to keep produce fresher for longer time and reduce food wastage.”
The trial of the new fully recyclable pulp punnet followed complaints from customers that existing plastic punnets sometimes put them off buying mushrooms, as the condensation that forms within in the punnets can, supposedly, deteriorate mushroom quality.
With the outcry about plastic packaging continuing - recently Theresa May added her voice to the clamour - the pressure is on to reduce usage.
However as one correspondent in a national newspaper noted - plastic packaging is robust, hygenic and practical - it’s hard to see how it can all be done away with.
