No More Tinned Tomatoes

Did you know that Sainsbury’s has stopped stocking tinned tomatoes as part of it’s green policy? From now on the supermarket is to sell tomatoes in recyclable cartons (pictured) rather than tins. Sainsbury’s sells about 22 million tins of tomatoes in a year, making the product the biggest-selling, non-fresh item.

Using the new cartons will enable more efficient lorry packing and should reduce packaging waste by 500 tons a year.
