Pick n Pay on Monday launched a ‘nude’ fruit and vegetable produce wall – a dedicated plastic and packaging-free zone – in 13 stores across the country as part of a trial to measure customers’ readiness to switch from pre-packaged food to loose products.
Retail Executive, Commercial at Pick n Pay, Paula Disberry, said plastic waste remained a concern for many customers, and this trial would give them the choice to shop for more everyday fruit and vegetables free from plastic packaging.
Disberry said the nude wall will include 12 new seasonal loose PnP fruit and vegetables. Brown steak mushrooms, portabellini mushrooms, red & green chillies, cocktail tomatoes, sweet Palermo peppers, baby brinjals, green beans, broccoli, zucchini, sweet corn and baby cabbage. These join the other 35 loose fruit and vegetables that were already available to customers.
