Tesco scraps multipacks of own label drinks

Tesco is scrapping multipacks of its own label drinks as part of the supermarket’s plans to save 45 million pieces of plastic a year.

However, individual cans of the products will continue to be sold at the same price per unit as a part of a multi-buy promotion, and shoppers will be able to mix and match purchases across lemonade, cola, ginger beer, soda and tonic water.

The multipacks of four items used to cost £1, but now the items are priced at 50p a can or four for £1.

Initially 12 million pieces of plastic a year will be saved from use on all own-brand canned fizzy drinks

Tesco will also save a further 33 million pieces of plastic in the autumn through the removal of  plastic multipacks from kids’ lunchbox drinks.

The supermarket’s head of packaging development Johnny Neville said: “Customers are focused on getting great value right now, but they still want to use less plastic.

“Not only is this move great news for the environment but it will also offer customers more choice and flexibility when it comes to fizzy drinks – at no extra cost. It could even work out much cheaper for customers who want a variety of drinks.”
