A HEREFORDSHIRE company has beaten off competition to be the only crisp brand available at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

Two Farmers crisps have won their place at the festival thanks to their 100 per cent plastic-free and compostable packets.

In 2019, Glastonbury banned the sale of single-use plastic bottles, saving over one million bottles from waste.

This year, the Herefordshire-based, planet-friendly snack brand is delighted to be part of the festival's continued efforts to challenge the use of single-use plastic.


Founder Sean Mason comments: "For a long time now, Glastonbury has been making huge efforts to make the festival a more environmentally friendly event with commitments towards a more sustainable future. We are thrilled to now play our small part in helping make a big difference and hope to raise awareness of the easy plastic-free swaps that are now available.'

Mark Green and Sean Mason successfully launched the UK's first sustainable crisp brand in Peterstow, near Ross-on-Wye, back in 2018.

With a plastic-free and compostable crisp packet, the award-winning, eco-friendly brand now produces up to 20,000 packets of crisps each day, reducing the amount of plastic packets out there that can typically take decades to decompose.

Derived from three layers of sustainable cellulose plus plant-based and biodegradable ink and glues, the Two Farmers packets take between 26 and 38 weeks to decompose under home-composting conditions, breaking down into water, carbon dioxide and biomass.

Glastonbury Festival will take place from June 22 to 26 at Worthy Farm in Somerset, with Two Farmers available from any traders selling crisps.
