Australia

Woolworths, Australia’s largest grocery retailer, have undertaken a major packaging project for their bakery products. Through collaboration with store operations and several packaging suppliers, Woolworths successfully replaced their previously black non-recyclable plastic trays with a renewable pulp/plant-based fibre sourced from unbleached bamboo (40%) and unbleached sugarcane (60%). This national change over into all 995 stores for over 50 in store bakery products represents 75% of all products that were previously packed in the black plastic non-recyclable tray. This reduced over 500 tonnes of plastic annually from their bakery department, and has improved the recyclability of the packaging.
