Packaging Free Partnership with Unpackaged
We have teamed up with zero waste specialist, Unpackaged, to offer a unique one-stop solution, called UnpackagedAT, to help reduce plastic packaging in-store.
Unpackaged, specialises in retail refill systems, combined with an advisory service to guide retailers through the installation process and beyond.
The premium gravity and scoop fill units are designed to create an eye-catching display of loose goods in-store, creating additional shopping theatre while reducing packaging and waste.
Oliver Stubbins, general manager at Welbeck Farm Shop has been operating an Unpackaged unit for over two and a half years and is delighted with both the unit and consultancy service that Unpackaged provide.
“Reducing the use of plastic in the Farm Shop is very important to us,” says Oliver Stubbins. “The display has enabled us to swap previously packaged goods into a loose format, saving shelf space, waste and of course packaging.
“We have seen volume sales of all products increase as customers buy more frequently, choosing whatever weight they require rather than risk wastage at home with a pre-determined pack.”
As a B Corp, we are continuously looking for enhancements to our operation that are better for people, the planet and for profit, using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
“In addition to the obvious packaging and food waste benefits that UnpackagedAT offer, I was particularly impressed with the ongoing retailer consultancy that they offer,” says Paul Hargreaves, CEO at Cotswold Fayre.
“Our ethos is to work in partnership with retailers and suppliers, so the joint initiative is a perfect fit.”
We will be offering retailers more than 40 different bulk buy skus including nuts, pulses, dried fruits, pulses, grains and sweet treats such as yoghurt covered raisins and chocolates. Click here to view the product range.
Our consolidation of product deliveries from one source, will help retailers carbon footprint, plus the time required to order from multiple suppliers.
Catherine Conway, founder of UnpackagedAT says: “We are delighted to be going into partnership with Cotswold Fayre, a company that shares our values. We can't wait to use our joint expertise to help independent retailers offer a truly sustainable shopping experience to their customers.”
