Yorkshire chippies choose compostable packaging



A family-owned business behind four of Yorkshire’s top fish and chips restaurants and takeaways has switched to 100% compostable packaging across all of its shops.

 
Quayside, Royal Fisheries, Fish Box Whitby and Fish Box Robin Hoods Bay, all owned by the Fusco family, now use environmentally friendly cardboard takeaway boxes and wrapping as well as compostable knives, forks, straws, coffee cups and lids. Its catering trailer, Whitby Fish and Chips, has also followed suit.
 
The company is also encouraging its suppliers to stop using single-use and non-recyclable plastics by requesting, where possible, all of its ingredients, including freshly caught fish supplied locally, are delivered in either reusable or recyclable containers.
 
Owner of Fusco’s of Whitby, Carol Fusco, comments: “As a business we are committed to ensuring that we do what we can to lower our impact on the environment and marine life. With advances in packaging manufacturing and a rise in public awareness about the negative effects that plastic has on the environment, there really is no need to be using non-biodegradable plastic catering disposables.”
 
She adds: “The town’s reputation for fish and chips, along with the stunning scenery, is part of what draws tourists here to Whitby. We need to look after it, especially with so many takeaways portions served along the coast every day. We hope that we can encourage other food businesses in the area to follow suit and opt for more environmentally friendly takeaway packaging, if they don’t already do so.”
