Algramo is a brand committed to building a sustainable economy by eliminating the need for single-use packaging.
We are a circular platform that encourages consumers to buy what they need in a more convenient and affordable way, with zero waste. More than a platform, we are a circular living ecosystem.
Algramo is a Chilean startup born in 2013 that began working alongside family-owned neighbourhood stores, distributing everyday products in vending machines and reusable packaging. This system allowed people to purchase products ‘by the gram’- the literal translation of Algramo. Doing this, enables low-resource families to buy in small quantities and pay less for life’s essentials.
Algramo has become a real-world example of a viable circular economy business model with global potential. It was recognised by Fast Company in 2015 and 2020 as the Most Innovative Company in Latin America. In 2019, Algramo won first place in the National Geographic Ocean Plastic Innovation Challenge and MIT Solves Circular Economy cohort. In 2021, Algramo won a spot in The Circulars Accelerator Program, an initiative of Accenture, in alliance with Ecolab and in collaboration with the World Economic Forum.
Algramo has presence in Chile, USA, Indonesia and now in the UK, and is currently working with global brands like Unilever, Nestlé, Walmart, Colgate and Lidl, to create smart inclusive distribution systems that meet their global supply chain and quality assurance standards. This creates a highly scalable circular distribution system that enables consumers to buy just the product and not the packaging waste.
