Carrefour Poland tests returnable bottles without receipts in Warsaw

Carrefour has started tests of returning bottles without receipts in Warsaw. Customers who return bottles at the store will receive a full deposit refund in the form of an e-voucher, with which they can pay for subsequent purchases. The retailer assumes that this solution will stimulate the circulation of returnable packaging and significantly reduce the amount of glass waste and the number of bottles produced in Poland.

Waitrose UK and Deliveroo ‘Donate a Plate’ campaign

Waitrose and Deliveroo have launched a new ‘Donate a Plate’ campaign to help “provide much-needed meals for vulnerable communities” while significantly expanding their partnership. Deliveroo’s shoppers can make a £3 donation via the Waitrose menu on its app, enough to cover the cost of several hot meals for families struggling to put food on the table last Christmas. Both Waitrose and Deliveroo will also match shoppers' donations between them up to £20,000.

Global innovation: BrandLoyalty takes a stand with Standi!

Unmanned and automated retail – that is not our future, it’s our present. Technology is skyrocketing, and therefore an increasing number of shoppers leave stores without human interaction. Standi offers these shoppers an in-store experience without friction and ensures they are aware, excited and ready to participate in retailers’ loyalty programmes.

Please meet Standi: the stand-alone dispenser. Standi can hand-out stamps both digitally and physically without POS software integration. BrandLoyalty developed this innovative solution to enable distribution of stamps and, in the near future, flow-packs to ensure a seamless self-scan experience.
