Why can’t RedMart just not use plastic bags?

With the wide range of products you are able to purchase, packing and delivering them becomes challenging with the risk of cross-contamination. At RedMart, we place your health and safety as our top priority, and aim to deliver your products to you in the safest manner possible.

In order to comply with guidelines for food safety, you may find that your products arrive in separate plastic bags. The reason for doing so is to reduce the chance of cross-contamination of your food products during storage and transit. We also separate your items to ensure that they are stored at the right temperature for optimum freshness.

Here are the general guidelines we follow for packing separation to ensure food safety. Separate bags for:

Dry goods
Cleaning items
Baby items
Raw, fresh meats and seafood
Fresh fruit and vegetables
Ready to eat frozen food
Raw frozen food

While we are working to reduce the number of plastic bags we use in fulfilling your orders, please be assured that all our current plastic bags are certified Oxo-biodegradable in accordance with ISO-17556 standards and recyclable at your local recycling bin. As a customer, you could pass the green plastic bags to our delivery representative for certified recycling or try out our fun suggestions printed on the bag!
