Less plastic, still fantastic

Border biscuits

LANARK-based Border Biscuits has removed 90% of the plastic from its packaging in a bid to improve its environmental credentials.

Suzie Carlaw, marketing manager at Border Biscuits, said that the launch of the new packaging was an “exciting development”.

“Innovating to reduce single-use plastic has been a key focus over the last 12 months and our new packaging means we can address the environmental concerns of our customers without compromising on the high quality of our beautifully crafted biscuits.

“As a family owned business, we pride ourselves on the craftsmanship of baking and are delighted to launch our new packaging.”

Border has also reduced the weight of its overall packaging for its Ginger, Classic and Traditional biscuits – which will allow double the number of packs to fit onto a single pallet.

This is designed to significantly reduce the company’s carbon footprint, saving the equivalent of 537 tonnes of CO2.

In addition, Border Biscuits has updated its logo to reflect the premium nature of its range.
The move is part of a wider £1.6 million investment into Border’s products and processes.
The new reduced-plastic packs are available now.
