What’s New

Eco Friendly Packaging

We’re happy to introduce a new packing machine that utilises eco-friendly recyclable netting rather than plastic bags.

The recycling of packaging offers considerable environmental benefits in terms of saving raw materials, energy and water and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
