The wax paper packaging used for many of our fresh quality breads is 100% recyclable and industrially compostable.
This means that consumers now have a choice that they can place it in the green recycling bin or the brown compost bin.
Our wax paper packaging has been tested in line with the Directive (EU) 2018/852, amending Directive 94/62/EC on Packaging and Packaging Waste and is 100% recyclable and industrial compostable conforming to EU Standards EN13430 (recoverable by material recycling) and EN13432 (recoverable through industrial composting and biodegradation) and is also Cré certified – Irish Compostable Certification Scheme for Industrial Compostability.
The Bord Bia Origin Green project is the world’s first sustainability programme for a country’s entire food and drink industry. Origin Green enables Ireland’s farmers and food producers to make measurable sustainability commitments which allow the industry to reduce its environmental impact and serve local communities more effectively. Brennans are proud to be part of this initiative.
