Recyclable Packaging

Here At Butcher's We Care About Keeping Your Dogs Happy, And We Also Want To Help Look After Our Planet

We’ve been making nutritious and delicious recipes for dogs for over 30 years now. As part of our commitment to keeping dogs as happy and healthy as possible, we also take responsibility for the impact our packaging and manufacturing processes can have on the environment. Over the past few years we’ve taken crucial steps towards using more recyclable packaging, in turn helping our customers to recycle.

All of our packaging is Recyclable[1]

Treats film is recyclable at soft plastic recycling points
We have removed the plastic shrink-wrap packaging from our tin multi-packs and replaced it with recyclable cardboard. Our boxes have saved over 564 tonnes of plastic over the last 4 years (2018-2022)[2], which is equivalent to 25.6 million plastic bottles![3]

Helping our pet-parents to recycle more

It is not just recyclable cardboard we use – our steel tins and foil trays are recyclable too. The steel tins can be easily turned into new materials, like car parts, bicycles, or even more tins for Butcher’s tasty recipes!

Our tins, foil trays and their cardboard packaging is all recyclable at the curbside. You’ll also find the packaging for our treats range recyclable, with the film recyclable at soft plastic recycling points.

It’s paws-itively fantastic news that all of the packaging for our nourishing food and treats for dogs is recyclable!

Processes in our Factory

We’re always looking for improvements we can make in our head office and factory. Rainwater is collected from the roof and used to power toilets, and we harness solar energy with solar panels on the roof.
