Compostable crisp brand brings two new eco-formats to market

After entering the snack market with the UK’s first 100% compostable crisp packet late last year, crisp-maker Two Farmers has introduced two new formats to sit alongside its 40g range. 

The crisps now come in 150g bags (trade price £1.41) and 400g sharing tins (trade price £7.50). The new bags are available across all flavours – salt & cider vinegar, lightly salted, Hereford Bullshot and Herefordshire Hop cheese & onion – while the tins are only available in lightly salted.

The tin is also recyclable but the Herefordshire-based brand says it is encouraging consumers to find a new use for it at home. While the bags contain an improved film in its compostable packaging that now offers a longer shelf-life for retailers. 

The new formats also include a plastic-free accreditation mark, making it easily identifiable as a sustainable option on shelf for eco-conscious consumers. 

The brand made an impression in the snack market with its eco-conscious packaging when it launched at the end of 2018, and was recently recognised by the Countryside Alliance’s Rural Oscars 2019 for its sustainable endeavours, winning the Rural Enterprise category.
