We’ve launched our newest snack bar – an all butter bar of crumbly caramel sea salt fudge enrobed in Belgian milk chocolate!
Not only are they absolutely delicious, but we’ve wrapped them in compostable cellulose packaging! We’ve been working on sourcing a new non-plastic wrapper for quite some time now, and we’re so pleased to have finally found a material that is plant-based, yet remains hard-wearing!
What does this mean exactly? It means that it won’t pollute our wonderful environment. Once you’ve enjoyed your fudge, simply place the wrapper into your compost bin and watch it decompose. We’re told it can take around 26 weeks, but with this glorious weather we’ve had, ours was gone in just over 4!
Buttermilk’s Caramel Sea Salt fudge bar packaging composting at home in just 4 weeks!
Tracy, Buttermilk’s MD, was recently asked why finding compostable packaging had been a priority: “Sustainability is an important part of Buttermilk’s ethos and we were keen to find a plastic-free solution so that customers can enjoy an on-the-go treat, knowing that the packaging will not end up in the oceans.” Explained Tracy.
“Being based in Cornwall means we’re surrounded by beaches so we see first-hand the importance of incorporating environmentally-sustainable packaging materials. We very much believe customers will agree with us that this is a step in the right direction.
The best news? These scrumptious treats are now available on our website to buy either singly or as case of 30. They have a great shelf life, so will keep in your cupboards…if you can resist!
