Sustainability Statement

The Melrose Kitchen strive to minimise the use of all single-use plastic and to maximise the use of reusable, recyclable and compostable materials in our products and packaging.

If you have any questions on how to sustainably dispose or recycle your products or packaging please do get in touch and we would be more than happy to help out:

Packing peanuts

Don't be alarmed if you find packing peanuts in your package. They may look like polystyrene but are in fact made from GM-free starch, making them 100% biodegradable. They will dissolve when run under warm water, or can be simply put in your food waste bin, composter or kept to be used again! 

Starter bags

Our starters are packaged in food-safe glassine bags which are fully recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.

Paper and card

We aim to use only FSC certified paper and card which is acid and elemental chlorine-free and to maximise the use of recycled paper and card in all our products and packaging.
