NEW LABEL

FOR HEALTH

WASTE NOT WANT NOT

Field Fare was launched 40 years

ago with what was then the visionary

idea of selling A-class fresh fruit and

vegetables frozen direct from the field

to independent retailers. These foods

are sold in a loose, scoop-and-serve

format. The environmental boasts for this

unprecedented model remain progressive

and impressive, pioneering packaging and

food waste reduction (and still improving

on it). Field Fare is now launching new

biodegradable bags for their frozen,

loose-serve lines encouraging customers

to use their own bags and containers

where possible. They also have ecocredentials

for the packaging of their

ready meal range packaging.

A new One Poll survey* has found that a

third of shoppers find it difficult to know

which foods to choose for a healthy diet.

The survey results come as Waitrose

launches a new label which will be

featured on hundreds of nutritious food

and drink products to make it easier for

customers to make healthier choices.

The new Good Health label now shows

on many of the supermarket's own-brand

products and a number of new healthier

products will also be launching soon,

many of which incorporate vegetables

in innovative ways in response to the

growing demand for plant-based protein.

Every product carrying the Good

Health label has been assessed by a team

of nutritionists and meet stricter criteria

based on government guidelines for fat,

saturated fat, added sugar and salt, and

so won't appear on products with red

traffic lights, apart from where the fats and

sugars are naturally occurring.

The nutritional benefits of the products

Food waste, plastics and unnecessary

packaging are in the news. The

Government's 25 Year Environment Plan

announced a new initiative from WRAP

and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, to

specifically tackle plastic packaging, with

a promise to "achieve zero avoidable

plastic waste by the end of 2042." At Field

Fare it's been news since 1977.

Chantal Plamondon and Jay Sinha,

authors of Life Without Plastic, were

quoted in The Mail Online in February of

this year saying, "Field Fare sells frozen

fruit, vegetables and bakery goods loose

from chest freezers at farm shops around

the country, encouraging shoppers to take

their own bags, so food can be decanted

into freezeable containers when at home."

will be clearly signposted on packaging,

including claims such as whether they're

high in, or a source of, vitamins, minerals

and other nutrients - as well as information

on how this in turn benefits health.

Indicators such as 'high in fibre', 'Source

of Vitamin D' and '1 of your 5 a day'

should help people to make healthier

choices.

New healthier products launching

this month include meat sausages which

are also packed with up to 35% fruit,

vegetables or pulses, such as quinoa,

cauliflower, kale and lentils.

*One Poll survey of 1,000 UK adults (not

limited to Waitrose shoppers), questioned

between 28/11/2017 and 30/11/2017,

commissioned for Waitrose Weekend.

DARK MATTERS
