Plant-based containers to be introduced next month

The Isle of Man Creamery will become the first dairy in the British Isles to switch completely to plant-based milk cartons, when it rolls out its new packaging next month (10 September).

The containers are made from fully sustainable and renewable sources, and will be in metric measurements of 500ml and one litre.

The creamery says the additional cost of the packaging will be absorbed by the company, and hopes the environmentally friendly material will lead more people to buy Manx milk in cartons.

Managing Director Findlay Macleod explains its green credentials.
