Packaging for Horticulture – a guide for small enterprises

Horticulture Wales has produced the Packaging for Horticulture guide to help Welsh businesses in the horticulture business make more informed choices when choosing the most appropriate packaging for produce.

  • an overview of packaging legislation and regulations
  • practical tips for using materials including paper, glass, metal, plastic and wood
  • a cut out and keep guide to the most common (and confusing) packaging logos or symbols
  • links to additional business support and advice
  • case studies outlining examples of best practice from other Welsh horticulture businesses
  • a ‘Packaging Checklist’ of key questions growers should ask
