The Golden Paste Company is encouraging regular TurmerAid™ users to consider purchasing their 15kg sacks to help reduce plastic use as part of their on-going commitment to the environment. 

The sacks are also excellent value for money and customers will make a saving of over £20 when purchasing a 15kg sack rather than using the same amount of TurmerAid™ packaged in the 2kg tubs.

Customers have the choice to be plastic free or purchase the 2kg TurmerAid™ tubs. TurmerAid™, the complete turmeric pellet for horses, is sold in plastic food grade tubs; these tubs are not made from recycled plastic but are recyclable and re-usable.

The Golden Paste Company removed plastic scoops from the 2kg tubs last year to reduce plastic use as a standard tablespoon can be used instead. Using one and a half level tablespoons to measure out the pellets is the equivalent to one of the scoops that was previously included in the tub.

Said Sales Manager, Hattie I’Anson: “The Golden Paste Company is committed to minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. We take care to recycle and reduce our waste internally, and have applied this thought process to our products and our packaging.

“From loose fill packing peanuts made from potato starch that dissolve in water, to reducing plastic packaging, we are constantly evaluating our operations to ensure they are as efficient as possible.

“Our bespoke branded tape is fully recyclable and the 'sticky' is made from potato starch. Case packs are fully recyclable or compostable and are made from cardboard. The Golden Paste Company has also stopped using bubble wrap.”

The only pelleted turmeric supplement on the market, TurmerAid™ is added to the diet all year round and over the summer months it can be fed straight from the hand or alone from a bucket if daily feeds are reduced. 

The RRP for a 2kg tub is £19.99, the 15kg sacks are £125.99.
