“From the very conception of the business I wanted it to be plastic free and as ethical as possible, and that goes right down from the ingredients I source to the packaging. I wanted beautiful packaging but something that was practical. It took me a good six months in all to work it all out and it was very much a design piece. But eventually I realised I could do it and tick all the boxes of food hygiene and safety. I’m really chuffed I did it.

“You have to be creative and do your research but there are ways to be a food producer and not use plastic, you just need the intention. Customers can see the difference and it’s a Unique Selling Point and people really like the look of it. It’s so much prettier, and that draws people. So even if they’re not that concerned … it still brings them in”
