CLUBZERØ has pioneered in delivering an award winning returnable packaging system for food and beverage brands globally. CLUBZERØ partners with businesses to make food and beverage on-the-go more sustainable; working together towards the ultimate goal of zero waste. Today they serve customers across the EU and North America, including the worlds largest food delivery company Just Eat Takeaway, NextGen Consortium brands (Starbucks, McDonald’s, Yum Brands, Nestle, Wendy’s) as well as leading food service company Baxter Storey, Cushman & Wakefield, Just Eat and retailer John Lewis & Partners. With a philosophy of making reusables a convenient alternative to single-use packaging, they’ve achieved a market leading return-rate of 95% vs industry standard of 60%. Their aim moving forward is to build the next robust sustainable consumption model that sees their efforts roll out beyond food and beverage to other reusable product categories such as Home and Body through the scale of operations they have already built.
