Aldi is trialling cardboard trays to replace the plastic trays usually used to house its steaks, in a move which will cut its annual plastic output by 240 tonnes.

The new trays will be used to house the supermarket’s range of own-brand, ‘Specially Selected’ steaks at more than 380 of its stores across Wales, the North West and the South East.

While the new packaging format does not eliminate the need for a clear, flexible plastic film, Aldi claims that it reduced the amount of plastic used, by weigh, to house its steaks by 90%.
