Just Eat Partners With Notpla To Boost Drive To Tackle Takeaway Sector Plastic Pollution

Just Eat has announced the launch and availability of Notpla’s seaweed-coated takeaway box to its restaurant partners in Ireland.


The Just Eat Notpla boxes are lined with a coating that replaces ordinary plastic-/bioplastic-lined takeaway containers. This packaging is recyclable and will biodegrade within four to six weeks in a home compost.

Following a successful trial in the UK, the packaging has been rolled out in Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Poland.


Jaz Rabadia MBE, global head of responsible business and sustainability at, said, “Improving the packaging used to deliver food to homes is an impactful way for us to help build a more sustainable future for the food delivery sector. By using our reach and expertise to help our restaurant partners adopt more environmentally friendly products and practices, we are able to influence operations not directly in our control.

“We’re excited to extend our work with Notpla to introduce a recyclable and home-compostable container, which degrades in a matter of weeks. Ireland is one of six markets now offering Notpla packaging to our restaurant partners.”

Amanda Roche-Kelly, managing director, Ireland, added, “We’re all aware of the imminent climate crisis we’re facing, both here in Ireland and globally. There’s never been a more important time to not only adopt sustainable practices as an organisation, but also offer our partners – and, in turn, customers – more sustainable choices. Offering sustainable packaging solutions to our restaurant partners is one way to do this. While there’s no quick fix to tackling sustainability, there are a multitude of ways companies and individuals can make an immediate impact. Every small step we take collectively can have a lasting effect on our climate targets and ambitions.”
