Bring your own container to store
15 November 2018
We know that packaging is an issue that our customers feel strongly about.
To help reduce the use of packaging we have introduced a ‘bring your own container to store’ offering. Our counters have always been a way to use less packaging and now we’re going even further. We have encouraged our customers to bring their own plastic reusable containers to our fresh meat, fish, cooked deli and cheese counters.
Our counter colleagues help to encourage and educate customers on bringing their own containers. They weight products, wrap them in recyclable paper and place them inside the customer’s container with the price label affixed to the paper.
For other products, we want to make sure all our packaging is designed to be used, reused, collected and recycled or repurposed. You can find out more information about our packaging commitments and approach here.
