The move is expected to reduce the brand’s use of virgin plastic by up to 200 tonnes each year, making it easier for people to recycle their pots alongside other paper packaging at home or on the go. This shift to paper means consumers now only need to rinse and recycle one piece of packaging, streamlining the process.

Prior to the change, Quaker porridge pots were recyclable, but the plastic inner packaging had to be separated from the card sheath for recycling. With the switch to paper packaging, recycling is now much simpler.

Gareth Callan, sustainable packaging lead at PepsiCo UK and Ireland, stated, “Quaker Oats was one of the first branded porridge pots on the market, so we’re proud to also be leading in packaging innovation and plastic reduction. We know convenience is a key factor in driving recycling rates, which is another important reason for launching this new packaging, and we’re pleased to be making it as easy as possible for Quaker fans to recycle their pots, wherever they are.”

This innovation aims to significantly reduce the brand’s use of virgin plastic while making recycling more convenient for consumers. These efforts align with a growing emphasis on food and drink sustainability, sustainable packaging, food and drink marketing, and food and drink consumer trends.
