Packaging plays a key role in the sustainability value chain.
Sainsbury’s has also revealed that it reduced the weight of its own-brand packaging by 7%, or 12,000 tonnes, in 2010.
But the Government’s Waste Review stated that survey after survey showed that consumers believe that packaging is a big environmental problem.
For this month’s poll, Packaging News is asking whether supermarkets can do more to reduce their packaging footprint.
To take part, simply cast your vote in the ‘Poll’ section on the right-hand side of the website.
