Natoora say they use 'plastic free packaging'.
"We have developed our own revolutionary packaging which is entirely plastic-free and home disposable. Each of our recyclable cardboard punnets is flow-wrapped with home-compostable film which, unlike traditional plastic flow-wrap, disintegrates within 180 days."
They encourage customers to treat the wrapping "like orange peel".
I cannot see any detail of what it's made of. It's generally pretty hard to find out exactly what film packaging is made of, so, often we have to make choices without this information.
If you have home composting systems do you add "plastic-free plastic" to yours?

I also have a pack of toilet rolls in a plastic compostable wrapper, will try that soon.
I compost anything I can so I'd be more than willing to try anything which said it was possible.
"Compostable plastic" is such a wide term. They might not be designed to break down at low temps.
