The Scottish Grocer’s Federation (SGF) has announced a partnership with reverse vending machine supplier RVM Systems ahead of its upcoming Deposit Return Scheme.

The partnership makes RVM a corporate member of the SGF.

Sweden-based RVM Systems has more than 20 years experience in supplying DRS markets around the world, operating across 35 countries.

It also has a Scottish office in Broxburn, West Lothian.

Dr Pete Cheema OBE, SGF chief executive, said: “The convenience sector operates in a hypercompetitive market place where customers demand high quality products at a competitive price but in enjoying these benefits want to know that they can do so in an environmentally responsible way.
