Woolworths Supermarkets Managing Director, Natalie Davis said: “While almost all customers are now bringing their own reusable bags, we know unplanned shops still present a challenge from time to time.
“Earlier this year we introduced the option of a paper bag, which can be recycled at home, and the feedback from customers has been positive.
“As paper bags become a permanent part of our range, we’re delighted to be supporting new South Australian jobs as we move to a local manufacturer in Detpak.
“Our proudly SA-made bags are the result of Detpak’s hard work to build the local capacity needed to supply almost 80 stores across South Australia and the Northern Territory.
“We look forward to seeing our contribution to the local industry grow as we roll out Australian made bags nationally over the next year.”
