Here at the Crieff Food Co, we have always championed, supported and shouted about our fabulous local suppliers and producers. Not only do these people produce world-class products for us all to enjoy but their carbon footprint is very low as they are local.
As well as championing these suppliers for a range of reasons, quality of product and their environmental credentials being high on the list, we have always looked to be as environmentally aware as we can be and are always looking for ways to improve our environmental credentials.
To that end, we are really pleased to announce the arrival of UnpackagedAT the Crieff Food Co. This is a zero-waste, no packaging, low plastic, bulk refill solution for a range of dry goods which will be a fantastic asset to The Crieff Food Co and hopefully Crieff too.
Our range will start with 24 products but we see this very much as the start of a journey that we will expand and grow, with your help.
BRING – You bring your containers into your store (if you forget, they can use a paper bag)
ZERO – You weigh the container when it’s empty and attach a container weight label
FILL – You fill it up from one of the dispensers (each product needs to go in its own container)
WEIGH – You come back to the scale to re-weigh it (the scale deducts the weight of the container)
LABEL – The scale dispenses a product barcode, which is attached to the container
PAY – You take your items to the till – just as you do with any pre-pack product

Additionally, we will be stocking 4 products which are ‘Local’ to us.
