Supermarket chain Asda has announced that it will move its own brand fresh ready meal range to coloured PET plastic packaging, replacing black plastic to aid recyclability.

Launching nationwide from 3 November, 97 of Asda’s fresh ready meal lines will move to new ‘Evolve’ by Faerch trays, made from natural cPET – a form of detectable and recyclable plastic. The move involves taking around 775 tonnes of black plastic out of circulation.
