It is biodegradable packaging that breaks down under specific composting conditions.
Our plastic-free compostable packaging is derived from sustainable cellulose, plus plant-based, biodegradable ink and glues.
Our packets break down into water, carbon dioxide and biomass. Once turned into compost it can be used to improve your soil.

Sustainable – Our compostable packaging is made from renewable resources such as plant fibres, reducing the reliance on petrochemicals.
Our old packaging was certified home compostable but with only 2 layers of cellulose it affected the shelf life and freshness of the crisps.
To be officially called home compostable the material needs to compost with in 26 weeks or less and because ours is between 27-36 weeks due to the extra layer of cellulose that is keeping them fresher for longer we can’t now use this term on our packs, but they can be used for home composting.
If you don’t have a food compost bin, the packets can go into a normal waste bin as they will decompose in landfill. Alternatively you can cut the packets up into 3-4 pieces (to help it break down quicker) and put into a soil bed.
No, although most crisps companies use meat flavours that don’t contain meat, we use get out beef and sausage seasoning made from a local butcher.
Sean & Mark are both farmers, and grow the potatoes for the crisps on the farm in Herefordshire.
