Supermarket in North Canterbury introduce BYO containers

Countdown will introduce bring-your-own containers at its deli, meat and seafood counters from Monday, June 10.

It will be trialled in its Christchurch, Amberley, Kaiapoi, Rangiora and Rolleston stores, and in Auckland’s Mt Eden and Mt Roskill stores, for up to two months before a national roll-out, the company said.

The trial in selected stores was to assess if training was up to scratch for the new processes, including weighing, cleaning and drying containers.

Customers had been pushing for a bring-your-own (BYO) option, Countdown’s general manager corporate affairs, safety and sustainability, Kiri Hannifin said.
