MyEcoBag compostable bag products by Secos will be launched by Coles supermarkets, initially in 770 stores across Australia, with plans for 2000.
The decision was made during a recent range review involving compostable products from Secos and comes on the heels of MyEcoBag experiencing significant year-over-year sales growth through Woolworths stores.
Secos will introduce a new 36-litre shelf-ready presentation pack and a new 27-litre pack at Coles. The fully compostable bags offer a fully compostable solution for diverting kitchen food and garden waste to green bins Fogo programs.
With Secos compostable bags now more readily available, more households in Australia will have the opportunity to participate in council-approved food organic waste programs by disposing of the bags of food waste in their green waste bin.
Using compostable bags from Secos gives households a hygienic and practical way to help with the separation of their food waste, which is essential to preventing food from ending up in landfills, the company says.
The two MyEcoBag options have been added by Coles on a permanent basis, and it expected they will be sold nationwide by more than 2000 stores by the end of the year.
Secos has said it is working to gain market share in grocery and convenience stores in Australia, the US, Latin America, and other regions while also developing new opportunities for growth in new markets for its branded MyEcoBag and MyEcoPet lines.
