When Met Foods Ltd wanted to make their packaging more environmentally friendly, they worked closely with National Flexible to launch recyclable yoghurt alternatives for Nush and COYO Organics.
“We are really pleased with the packaging; not only does it look bright and eye catching it is recyclable. Sustainability is important to us and our customers, we want to ensure our products are easily recyclable and as kind to the planet as possible. National Flexible helped us make this as easy as possible for our customers wanting to reduce their packaging waste.”
