Australian-based sustainable packaging developer SECOS Group has been selected by Woolworths to supply its compostable products for sale through the supermarket giant’s network of Eco stores.

Woolworths will market SECOS’ two certified compostable bin liners into its stores – 8L Kitchen Caddy Bag and 36L Bin Liner.

Initial rollout will begin in July with 86 Eco Stores and a view to expand supply through the broader Woolworths retail network.

The availability of SECOS’ compostable bags via Woolworths stores will give households participating in approved council food organic waste programs the option to dispose of the bags and food waste in their green waste bin.

Ian Stacey, SECOS CEO said SECOS is pleased to broaden its product portfolio and customer base in what he feels will be a strong growth area both in Australia and around the world.

“It is pleasing to see the hard work in launching new brands and products come to fruition,” Stacey said.

SECOS Group was one of the first companies in Australia to have its compostable biopolymer resin & film products certified as compostable in 2012.
