Bio shoppers

The Group decided to use shoppers made of recycled or bio degradable material globally, in all the countries in which it operates and across both business segments: in particular, World Duty Free and Aldeasa for Travel Retail & Duty-Free and Autogrill France, HMSHost and Autogrill Italia for Food & Beverage. Approximately 6,000,000 shopping bags in MaterBi, biodegradable and compostable material based on plant components, like maize starch, and biodegradable polymers obtained both from raw materials of renewable origin and raw materials of fossil origin were made available in the Italian stores. Aldeasa, the Autogrill Group Spanish division which operates in the Travel Retail & Duty–Free segment, confirmed its support for WWF’s projects in Spain promoting the preservation of marine life through the sale of biodegradable shoppers in 2011.
