Reusable large-scale refill solution
publié le jeudi 30 novembre 2023
The Refill Coalition (Aldi UK, Ocado Retail and CHEP) has worked with GoUnpackaged on a large-scale retail refill pilot for the complete, standardized in-store supply of basic food items, such as cereals and pasta, and soon household and personal care products.
For this solution launched at Aldi UK last October, Berry Global designed a bespoke 14-liter HDPE reusable container to deliver products and install them in their in-store refill station. Once empty, the container is returned to be washed and refilled. While virgin HDPE was favored for its strength and durability, the Refill Coalition plans to introduce post-consumer recycling (PCR) in the future. In early 2024, a 3-liter bulk refill with 60 and 80mm necks will be launched for home delivery of dry and liquid products for Ocado Retail.
