France: plastic packaging for fruit and vegetables banned

Your substances


The most delicate products such as mushrooms, strawberries and raspberries are exempted, for which there will be time until 2026

In France, from 1 January 2022, about thirty fresh fruit and vegetables can no longer be sold in plastic packaging. Distributors say they are ready, horticulturists and producers a little less. Therefore, according to the new measure on the shelves of large-scale distribution, these products will have to be sold loose or in alternative containers (cardboard or paper), and this should make it possible to eliminate about 1 billion unnecessary packaging per year as estimated by the Paris government.
