White's Oats

Supply Chain & Packaging

Sustainable Packaging

93% of our packaging can be recycled at kerb side and we are taking proactive steps to make the remaining 7% recyclable, reusable or compostable by the end of 2022. Plastic remains the biggest challenge but we are actively taking steps to minimise our plastic usage and convert existing packaging so that it can be reduced, reused or recycled. We pledge that 100% of our packaging will be recyclable by Dec 2022.

Whites Oats Speedicook Oats Recycable Packaging

All our paper and board is sustainably sourced and FSC certified and our packaging bears the label to make it easier for consumers to make the correct environmental and social choice. We are members of the OPRL Recycling Scheme and have adopted the OPRL’s recycle logo, a standardised labelling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the end consumer.
