Best green chocolate treats for a plastic-free Easter

Modern consumers are more and more mindful of the impact of packaging, chocolate egg packaging in this case. According to the GWP Group, 59% of British adults think that Easter eggs are over-packaged and believe that brands should take steps to reduce packaging.

“The plastic and cardboard packaging typically accounts for over a quarter of total product weight in many of the UK’s best-selling chocolate eggs. This can mean that on average only 38% of an Easter egg box (by volume) is taken up by the chocolate itself.”

According to the Retail Data Partnership, 80 million chocolate Easter eggs are being sold each year in the United Kingdom. This makes up thousands and thousands of packaging which is being sent to landfills or, hopefully, recycling centres (if the packaging allows).

So, it’s more important than ever to start thinking green for your modern customers and a happier planet. This Easter, showcase plastic-free Easter eggs and environmentally-friendly Easter products with our help. At Springvale Foods, we have available a wide range of green Easter brands. Here are a few examples.
