Pepperwood Moves to Eco-Friendly Packaging


WEEKS after the Government announced a ban on styrofoam and single-use plastic bags, Pepperwood says it has started using biodegradable containers.

The ban, which was announced by Daryl Vaz, the minister without portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation,in September, is to take effect January 1, 2019.

“A month before the Government made its announcement, we were already in the midst of procuring these items. We realised the environmental impact of plastic and styrofoam containers and quickly sought to address it,” Pepperwood Sales and Marketing Manager Rockell Clarke is quoted as saying in a release from the local jerk restaurant.

“We commend the Government for the bold move and encourage other businesses to embrace the change,” she continued.

Pepperwood admitted that the new containers cost more than styrofoam and plastic packaging, but said its customers deserve the best.

“Our customers can expect the same great tasting jerk, now in a new biodegradable container,” Clarke said.

The sales and marketing manager also added that Pepperwood would be absorbing the transitional cost.

“As long as the dollar continues to strengthen against the USD and our suppliers maintain cost, we will not apply a price increase to our food,” she said.
