Multi-buy offers in the retail space often feature products wrapped in plastic, so Aldi is trialling new plastic-free multipacks of Corale Premium baked beans in the UK to help change this. The trial will see the retailer removing plastic wrap from its four-packs of baked beans, while still offering the multi-buy discount for shoppers to take advantage of. This is hoped to reduce the amount of plastic waste created with commonly purchased products and could help to spur additional initiatives down the line.
Plastics and Packaging Director at Aldi Richard Gorman spoke on the new plastic-free multipacks saying, "We are committed to reducing plastic and unnecessary packaging wherever possible, while still offering the highest-quality products at the lowest prices. This trial offers customers the best of both worlds, allowing them to benefit from multipack prices without the plastic waste.”
