Just days after Coles said ‘yes’ to stocking Thankyou’s range of not-for-profit products, Woolworths has followed suit and also agreed to support the brand.
As reported in B&T, a social media campaign called on Aussies to voice their support for Thankyou’s range of water, food and body care products, and asked the two supermarket giants to get on board.
Thankyou’s co-founder and managing director Daniel Flynn met with Coles representatives on Friday – and won their support. He has now met with the team from Woolworths and has also convinced them.
Flynn (left) said: “This whole week has been a little surreal, and Woolworths telling us they’re in just tops it all off. Woolworths has agreed to range some of our food products as well as our bottled water. We are also looking at future opportunities to stock out body care range.
“By bringing the Thankyou range to the 19.5 million customers that pass through Woolies every week, we will be able to make a massive difference for people throughout Asia and Africa, who are in desperate need of safe drinking water, food and hygiene education.”
