Retournzy coop’s mission is to reduce waste at the source in the catering, event, corporate and institutional sectors in order to revolutionize the way people consume take-out meals or meals normally served in individual single-use containers, by offering an ecological and sustainable alternative to the use of these containers, thanks to a turnkey service of distribution, collection, washing and sanitation of shared reusable containers. Retournzy informs and educates food service professionals and consumers on the issue of single use and the benefits of reusable containers in the face of these challenges.




By sharing reusable containers as an alternative to single-use containers, we want to encourage a circular economy



By paying attention to every details, from the choice of containers to their transport, we ensure the ecological coherence of our service



By professionally cleaning containers, we ensure that their hygiene meets the rules defined by the MAPAQ

Transparence Retournzy


We advocate transparent and honest communication with all our stakeholders

Love & Care


By working together, we are convinced that we can bring an alternative the new normal of tomorrow

Travel Activities


We want to gather around the project a community of actors committed to the transition. The cooperative model allows us to offer a service designed by and for its members, so that they can define the solution and make it radiate, within a strong, committed and united network


The strength of our team is diversity! Because we are entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, caterers and logistics experts from different backgrounds, we have assembled our skills to create a more resilient local community with you.
