Packaging for Horticulture – a practical guide for small enterprises

A new packaging guide is available free to download here.

Packaging for Horticulture – a practical guide for small enterprises has been published by Horticulture Wales and is written by Iain Cox of Ecostudio with support from Susie Gardner and designed by Kate Hamer Design.

The guide includes a step-by-step checklist to equip companies with practical knowledge to make cost-effective and sustainable packaging decisions.

It provides technical know-how and explains how good environmental choices can win new business. The guide includes:

  • An overview of packaging legislation and regulations
  • practical tips for using materials including paper, glass, metal, plastic and wood
  • a cut out and keep guide to the most common (and confusing) packaging logos or symbols
  • links to additional business support and advice
  • case studies outlining examples of best practice from other Welsh horticulture businesses
  • a 'Packaging Checklist' of key questions growers should ask

The guide is endorsed by policy & industry and promoted by Business Wales as a toolkit for achieving best practice.
