“We are massive on biodegradable packaging and on minimising waste as much as possible.

We also ensure that we recycle all our packaging and waste accordingly whenever we are events and festivals, which includes oil and any other products. The environment and how we impact it is extremely important to us, hence why we work very closely with the UK's leading bio-packaging companies.” Az Javed

The Shellfish Pig

“We are 100% plastic free as we recently decided to stop selling bottled water, which was our last plastic product within our control. As a marine scientist and chef it’s two fold for me. Firstly I’m aware of the devastating effects plastics has on the world’s oceans and marine life. Anyone taking any steps, however small, is doing the right thing and contributing to healthier oceans and marine life moving forward. Secondly, I love seafood and want healthy and sustainable fish stocks. Plastic breaks down into minute particles which are eaten by smaller fish which are in turn eaten up the food chain.” Nick Archer

"We serve our food in natural, high-quality biodgradable and compostable palm leaf plates and we provide wooden forks instead of plastics, trying to move our business towards zero waste. Almost 60 billion palm leaves fall to the ground every year from these trees! Once collected, the leaves are washed in locally sourced spring water and heat-pressed to make food packaging."

“All of our cordials are actually made using surplus fruit helping fight food waste! We are moving towards metal lids instead of plastic ones and we have now stopped using bubble wrap, using a recyclable version instead, moving one step closer to being plastic free. It might not be quite on the same scale as some food trucks, but we’re getting there and hopefully reducing our impact en route!” Natasha Steele
