Iceland is trialling a new, innovative packaging scheme for several items in its stores in a bid to drastically reduce plastic use.
The supermarket, which boasts almost 1,000 branches across the UK, has announced it is trialling new forms of packaging on seven items, including bread, potatoes, apples, pears, strawberries, blueberries and mushrooms.
If the trials prove successful, the introduction of plastic-free and reduced-plastic packaging could prevent hundreds of tonnes worth of plastic being used by the firm on an annual basis.
