Packaging-free bulk sales
In 2017, Auchan was the first supermarket/hypermarket to serve bulk products in customers’ own packaging. Since then, Carrefour and Kaufland have trained their staff and adapted their procedure to be able to do the same. Generally speaking, hypermarkets have developed a range of dry bulk products, such as nuts, dried fruits, beans etc., making it easier for customers to shop with their own containers.
Carrefour Polska introduced the possibility of buying products by weight in customers’ own reusable packaging, while at the same time, running an information campaign for customers. In addition, in all the “Tasty” bistros operating at Carrefour hypermarkets, clients can drink coffee poured into their own reusable mugs.
