Camile Thai Introduces Reusable Packaging In Partnership With Vytal Ireland

Camile Thai Kitchen has introduced reusable packaging as part of a new pilot programme running in partnership with app-based reusable platform Vytal Ireland.


From Monday 13 March, customers visiting Camile Thai Pearse Street will have the option to choose to reuse when they order their favourite signature dish, with no deposit required. Patrons have 14 days to return the packaging to the restaurant, where it will be reabsorbed into the system and ready for its next use.


Daniel Greene, managing director of Camile Thai Kitchen, said, “We are proud to be the first takeaway in Ireland to offer our customers the opportunity to choose to reuse their packaging with Vytal’s innovative technology. As a business, Camile is committed to supporting the development of sustainable communities by discovering new solutions to industry issues that are contributing to climate change.

“This pilot will enable our customers to cut down on their packaging waste, but it also provides a convenient city centre location for Vytal users to deposit their packaging for free. Our overall aim is to encourage, enable and increase the uptake in reusable solutions across the industry, reducing the circulation of single-use containers and supporting a circular economy, for the benefit of us all.”

Explaining how the Vytal process works, restaurateur and co-founder of Vytal Ireland Michelle Moloughney said, “Camile’s investment in Vytal’s reusable system is extremely encouraging, as we work towards a zero-disposable-packaging future. The simple and efficient return process that will be made available to guests via this Pearse Street pilot will hopefully encourage more customers to try this service and see for themselves how easy it is to choose to reuse.


“Camile Thai has led the hospitality industry for many years in the area of sustainability, so we look forward to working closely with the group on the continued roll-out of this programme, inviting Pearse Street patrons to join our over 400,000 registered users by simply downloading the Vytal app before choosing their favourite Camile Thai dish.”
