Why was Sainsbury sued for excess packaging?

    This case was in relationship to Sainsbury’s taste the Difference Slow Matured Ultimate Beef Roasting Joint. The Lincolnshire County Council’s “trading standards claimed “excessive” wrapping around a fresh joint of beef was damaging to the environment.” This was the basis of their case.

    Yes, that is true. Sainsbury’s was sued for over packaging its beef. Apparently, Lincolnshire County Concil’s Trading Standards service (that’s a mouthful huh?) claimed that the excessive packaging did not meet the U.K.’s Packaging Regulation – which requires using “the minimum amount of packaging necessary for adequate safety and hygiene”. In response Sainsbury has stated they have already decreased their packaging by 53% and will continue to be cut 10% in the following months.
