Asda launches first refill store in Scotland

Asda has opened its first Scottish refill store in Glasgow as it looks to help customers shop more sustainably .

The shop allows customers to use their own containers to buy branded and unbranded products such as cereals, pasta, rice, tea and coffee from aisles containing dedicated dispensers. They can also choose to buy re-usable containers in-store. In addition, the shop offers a number of shampoo, soap and detergent products in refillable bottles.

The supermarket has partnered with a range of leading brands on the initiative, including Kelloggs, Napolina, Yorkshire Tea, P&G and Unilever.

Asda launched its first refill store in Leeds last October as part of plans to remove three billion items of single use plastic from its business by 2025.

Susan Thomas, director of commercial sustainability at Asda, said: “We have chosen Scotland as the location for our second refill store because it is an important market for Asda and a place where we regularly receive constructive feedback from our customers. This feedback is very important to us as we refine our refill offering in stores and work towards a goal of making refill and reuse part of every shopping trip.”

Asda is planning to introduce the refill concept to Milton Keynes and York by the end of the year.
