Carrefour Bydgoszcz Urges Customers To Bring Bags, Containers For Groceries

Carrefour Polska has announced that customers in its Fordon Gallery store in Bydgoszcz can now bring their own containers and bags for grocery purchases.

It is the first store in the network to allow customers to buy products by weight in shoppers' own containers.

The Product Range

Customers can buy a range of products including meats, cheese, cabbage, and pickled cucumbers, as well as fruit and vegetables.

In the store, customers hand over their packaging containers to shopping assistants at respective counters, who weigh the products and add a label that can be scanned at the checkout counters.

Plastic Consumption

The move is a part of the retail group's strategy to cut plastic consumption in product packaging.

By 2025, it aims to switch to own-brand packaging that can be recycled or composted.

The retailer also encourages customers to buy coffee in their own reusable cups in its 'Smacznie' bistro outlets, operating at Carrefour hypermarkets.
