Its been launched in 13 stores across South Africa as part of a trial to measure customers’ readiness to switch from pre-packaged food to loose products.

Retail Executive, Commercial, at Pick n PayPick n Pa, Paula Disberry, said plastic waste remains 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.
