The shop will offer refill points for dried goods and more to reduce waste

Macknade Fine Foods is the first shop to offer a plastic-free shopping section in Faversham with the launch of Unpackaged at Macknade. It enables customers to bring their own containers to refill, so they can shop without using any single-use plastic and can reduce food waste by only buying the amount they need. On offer is an array of dried goods, from rice and pulses to dried fruit and muesli. The Unpackaged dispensers are next to the bakery and allow customers to fill their own containers, or the paper bags provided in-store, and take them to the tills.

Customers simply weigh their container before weighing it again with the product inside.
