Why do PEMA products have two layers of packaging and is that environmentally friendly?
The outer layer (polypropylene) locks in flavour whilst the inner layer (polyethylene) keeps the bread moist even when the outer layer has been removed. Even after a week of being opened, PEMA bread kept in the fridge will remain fresh. The inner packaging guarantees a long shelf life thereby reducing food waste.
Both layers are up to 100% recyclable, according to varying regional waste management policies and should be disposed of responsibly.
