Our Journey Towards Sustainability

At Metcash, we’re not just talking the talk but walking the walk.

From phasing out problematic packaging to integrating more recycled content, we’re leading the charge towards a greener future.

Our recent achievements speak volumes, with a significant decrease in plastic wrap usage and a commitment to national packaging targets set by the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).

Our Achievements

We’re proud of our accomplishments, from reducing plastic packaging across our product lines to launching innovative recycling programs.

By integrating post-consumer waste into our products and collaborating with organisations like Planet Ark, we’re progressing towards a circular economy where waste is transformed into valuable resources.

We’re also proud to be the very first grocery retail network to sign on with the National Plastics Recycling Scheme (NPRS), where we’ll be providing packaging data from our private label grocery products, as well as financial support and insights to shape and further promote the program.
