Asda launches first refill store in Scotland

The supermarket has partnered with household brands including Kellogg’s, Napolina, Yorkshire Tea and Unilever, to introduce over 60 products sold loose and unpackaged within specific aisles of its Toryglen store in Glasgow

Asda has announced that it has introduced its first refill store in Scotland as part of its drive to reduce plastic and help customers shop more sustainability.

The supermarket has partnered with household brands including Kellogg’s, Napolina, Yorkshire Tea and Unilever, to introduce over 60 products sold loose and unpackaged within specific aisles of its Toryglen store in Glasgow.

The launch of the Toryglen refill store is part of Asda’s strategy to remove three billion pieces of single use plastic from its business by 2025 and follows the successful launch of its first refill store in Leeds last October.

Susan Thomas, director of commercial sustainability at Asda said: “We have chosen Scotland as the location for our second refill store because it is an important market for Asda and a place where we regularly receive constructive feedback from our customers.

“With COP26 coming to Glasgow, there has certainly been an increase in interest in environmental issues across the country, so to see refill land in the host city and with such engaged customers is a really important moment for us.”
