The Co-op strengthens environmental credentials

Grocer introduces a peat-free compost product into its own-label gardening range.
The Co-operative has introduced a peat-free compost product into its own-label gardening range.

The compost is FSC-approved and also accredited by the soil association for use in organic systems.

It contains renewable bark fines and coir, and is for use for bedding, potting and organic gardening.

The Co-operative said it will lead the market with 60% peat-reduced products across the remainder of its compost range.

"This reduction has been made possible due to the use of 'Forest Gold Plus', a sustainable peat replacement formulated for professional growers," it said in a statement, adding that extensive testing, including independent growing trials, has ensured performance is comparable to other peat-based products.

Starting at £1.19 up to £3.99, the products will be available in selected Co-operative stores throughout May 2008.
