Increase of food refill services in the UK
To battle the effects of single-use plastic, multiple UK retailers introduced food refill possibilities. Last year, Mark & Spencer and Waitrose introduced new refill or bring-your-own-container services. In early 2020, Asda announced plans for a refill scheme. These refill possibilities are an emerging trend in the UK, bringing opportunities for retailers. According to research from GlobalData, 71.3% of Brits across all demographics would be willing to use a refill service.
