A KEIGHLEY packaging firm has produced a groundbreaking fully-recyclable yogurt pot now being used by a leading dairy.

The 140g pots are manufactured by PFF Group – whose head office is in Royd Ings Avenue – using what's known as IMPAC-T packaging, containing plastic and card that can be easily separated and reprocessed.

Alston Dairy uses the pots as part of its Ann Forshaw’s farmhouse yogurt range – stocked by supermarkets including Waitrose, Sainsbury's, the Co-op, Morrisons and Booths.

Ian Smith, PFF Group sales director, said: "We know how important sustainability is to Alston Dairy and its customers.

"Our IMPAC-T product uses less plastic than equivalent packaging and has been introduced amid increasing demand from food manufacturers, retailers and the public alike for plastic reduction."
