Co-op to sell 100% compostable sandwiches at Glastonbury

The Co-op is trialling a stand at Glastonbury festival which sells sandwiches in 100 per cent compostable packaging.

Ten types of ready-to-eat sandwiches will be available to buy at the Co-op’s pop-up tent at Glastonbury Festival, which starts on Wednesday this week.

Each will come in packaging that is reportedly 100 per cent compostable, from the basic card they are made out of, to the transparent plastic film, to the label.

As the festival has banned single use plastics this year, the Co-op will also sell spring water in aluminium cans and refillable water bottles.

Last year the Co-op announced it was launching its plastic bottle deposit return vending machines at six different festivals, and will bring the same technology to Glastonbury this year.

“The festivals are a great opportunity to push boundaries with new technology and this year we have been again trialling Deposit Return machines and have also introduced electronic counter cache machines,” the Co-op’s head of partnerships Alasdair Fowle said.
