We’re taking action
to look after one’s planet

Here at Tyrrells we are always looking for new ways to help the environment – take a look below to see all the great things we’ve done so far!


Introducing Recycled Plastic Into Our Packs

As part of our ongoing commitment to help protect our planet and reduce the use of virgin materials, we’ve introduced 25% recycled plastic within our packaging, this is based on the ISCC mass balance approach.

For now, due to availability, this recycled material features across our most popular Tyrrellbly Tyrrellbly Tasty 150g sharing packs; Tyrrells Lightly Sea Salted, Tyrrells Mature Cheddar & Chive, Tyrrells Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar, and Tyrrells Sweet Chilli & Red Pepper.


Cutting back on packaging

Although crisp packets keep our Tyrrells crisps fresh and tasty, the nature of the plastic film means you can’t yet put them in your normal domestic recycling. This is because the infrastructure to recycle this material is not currently available at scale in the UK. Therefore, to help combat this, we are taking action to cut back on our plastic packaging usage.

Our packs might feel a bit thinner than they used to but don’t worry chaps and chapesses, our crisps are just the same and still Tyrrellbly Tyrrellbly Tasty!

Recycling your crisp packets

Recycle with bags at large supermarket (don't recycle at home)

Did you know you can now recycle your crisp packets with bags at large supermarkets?


Only the finest spuds are good enough for Tyrrells.

That’s why we have established relationships with our carefully selected spud growers. Our close ties mean we source the finest quality British potatoes and invest in the sustainability and resilience of our supply chain.

We cover our crop

We have a sustainability project which promotes initiatives such as the use of cover crops to promote soil health within our supply chain.

This activity means we are always keeping a living root in the soil. By growing selected cover crops in the window between food crops such as cereals and potatoes on the land we create soil cover over the winter period when the soil would traditionally be left bare. This practice is a key component of regenerative agriculture and offers a nature-based solution to climate mitigation.

Terrific benefits include:

  • improved water infiltration, reducing flood risk

  • recycling & retention of major nutrients such as Nitrogen, Phosphorus, & Potassium

  • reduced risk of soil erosion and nutrient leaching into water courses

  • broken disease cycles

  • healthier soil & encouragement of microbes that feed and protect other crops

  • enhanced biodiversity, providing a habitat for pollinators and other species

Using less water

At the farm we have rainwater harvesting equipment. Measures, such as this helps us to reduce our water consumption.
