Subway takes a leap towards sustainability with 100% recyclable platters in Australia and New Zealand

Subway is set to introduce 100% curbside recyclable platters, replacing the current plastic catering takeaway trays, in all of its restaurants throughout Australia and New Zealand.

As per an official statement, this initiative is expected to eliminate the equivalent of 26 garbage trucks filled with plastic from the environment annually.

Shane Bracken, Managing Director of Subway Australia and New Zealand, stated that this decision aligns with the brand’s goal of ensuring that 100% of its packaging is recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable.

“Packaging, in particular, plays a huge role in the choices we make towards our sustainability commitments. It’s critical that we’re considering the circular economy and how our packaging can be better designed for sustainability through its entire lifecycle, versus focusing only on the end product and how it is disposed of,” Bracken said.

Detpak, a division of the South Australian packaging company Detmold Group, will be producing eco-friendly catering platters for Subway establishments throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Developed and validated at Detpak’s LaunchPad R&D laboratory in Adelaide, South Australia, the innovative fiber-based catering platter is anticipated to contribute to the removal of 205 tonnes of plastic from the environment annually.
