Australia’s largest bulk foods and zero waste retailer The Source Bulk Foods has unveiled its first outlet in Singapore.
Located at Cluny Court, the store will carry a wide range of pantry staples, numbering more than 350 products that include premium whole foods and treats as well as packaging-free household products.
Founded in 2012 in Byron Bay, Sydney, Australia, The Source Bulk Foods has promoted an ethos of zero packaging, encouraging customers to buy and use only what is needed.
“We are as much about providing nutritious products as we are about embracing a zero waste goal, and creating a healthy community,” said The Source Bulk Foods master franchisor for Southeast Asia Rob Behennah.
“Our passionate team looks forward to delivering wholesome food, nourishing families, and in doing so, taking a hands-on approach to nurturing our planet.”
Shoppers at the store are given three easy steps to purchase: grab a bag (or refill a jar), write the product code, and fill the bag with the desired amount of the chosen product. Customers then proceed to the cashier, where their groceries will be weighed and payment made.
“The Source Bulk Foods is revolutionising the way we shop,” said franchise partner and full-time nutritionist Sarah Widjaja. “At every step of the way, suppliers, retailers, and customers can reduce their use of unnecessary packaging and single-use plastics. By buying only what is needed, we can also minimise food waste.”
