“We’ve done it to try and cut down on all the waste out there. There’s just so much, it’s everywhere. So we’re trying to do our bit to help.
“The feedback from customers is really good. Really good. I think they’ve all had enough of it, it’s come to a cusp and they’ve all bought into it. We’ve definitely seen an increase in customers through the doors. Purely because people are looking for a plastic free alternative and up until now they haven’t had it. Now they’ve got it and, although the majority of our fruit and veg was never in plastic, we’ve now gone the extra mile to find more lines which are plastic free.
“It’s cost more … but at the end of the day if we get more customers from it one will outweigh the other and it will be viable. If not, we are happy to swallow the cost. At the moment we’re sourcing stuff to get it rolled out and as time goes on we’ll find better suppliers and get better deals. We’ve just got to take it on board now.”
