Root veg and prepared food specialists Mash Direct announced they will ditch black packaging by St Patrick's Day 2019.
The Northern Irish company said its New Year Resolution will see it remove up to 240 tonnes of black packaging from the food system each year by switiching their packaging to a greener alternative.
Mash Direct said it would also be extending its commitment to keeping all of its range palm oil free.
“In 2018, we achieved our goal of eradicating palm oil from our products in light of the issues surrounding deforestation. We reformulated the recipe of our Chilli Baby Bakes to remove palm oil and continue to enforce this rule across our new product development,” the company stated.
“In 2019 we are aiming to remove all black plastic from our packaging by April, years ahead of the targets set by many major supermarkets.”
