Just Eat trials world’s first seaweed-based sauce sachets



Just Eat is running a trial of seaweed-based sauce sachets that are fully compostable and which decompose within six weeks.


The Ooho! Seaweed Sauce sachets, created in partnership with sustainable packaging development company Skipping Rocks Lab, are part of the
company’s commitment to tackle the impact of takeaways on plastic pollution.

The trial is running in conjunction with The Fat Pizza in Southend, Essex, which will be serving ketchup and garlic & herb sauce in sachets made from an alginate based material. They are opened just like normal sachets and can be thrown into the home compost, or otherwise the normal bin, to fully decompose.

Just Eat is inviting customers who receive a Seaweed based sauce sachet to leave their feedback in return for the chance to win a £100 Just Eat voucher. The trial will assess the feasibility of rolling out the seaweed sauce sachets more broadly across its network.

Graham Corfield, UK managing director of Just Eat, said: “At Just Eat, we’re committed to helping reduce the impact of the takeaway industry on plastic waste levels and we’ve already taken measures to drive more environmentally-friendly behaviour among our restaurant partners and customers. We’re delighted to now be taking our commitment a step further through our partnership with Skipping Rocks Lab.

“The Ooho Sauce Sachets trial and the results from it will form an important part of our ongoing work to develop innovative and credible alternatives to traditional single-use plastic packaging currently in use across the takeaway sector.”

Sunny Chhina, owner of The Fat Pizza, said: “As an independent business owner, I want to make sure I’m doing my part to help fight plastic pollution in the takeaway industry. I think the commitment Just Eat has made to reduce the impact of plastic waste is fantastic and I am thrilled to be part of this exciting initiative by trialling the use of Ooho! Seaweed-based sauce sachets in my restaurant.”
