Packaging and Recycling

How will Hayes Meadow perishable produce arrive?

Why WOOL makes the best insulated packaging?

  • Excellent for ensuring produce arrives in the best condition – at the appropriate temperature and undamaged.
  • Proven to perform better than polystyrene – keeping chilled contents below 5°c for up to 3 days.
  • Protective – snugly cushioning contents in transit
  • Environmentally friendly – wool is completely biodegradable and compostable

You’ll find ice packs in your delivery. This can be stored in the freezer or recycled. You simply empty the neutral liquid down the drain and recycle the outer plastic.
