Tovi Foods is delighted to announce the launch of the first heart-healthy Canola cooking oil ‘Refill & Reuse’ station at the Good Market Colombo on Saturday 28th March.  The concept is very simple and, in some ways, familiar to many Sri Lankans – consumers are able to bring in a clean, empty glass bottle and fill it with cooking oil.

The very significant difference is the Tovi Refill & Reuse concept provides access to 100% pure, fresh and heart-healthy canola cooking oil.  Historically – loose oil – has been known as unhealthy, unsanitary and of often very questionable origin.

The simple idea comes to life at Good Market Colombo when consumers can bring in an empty cooking oil bottle – and simply refill it is with heart-healthy, cholesterol lowering Canola oil. Tovi’s heart healthy and high-quality Canola oil is grown in Germany, is a NON-GMO low pesticide crop natural in Vitamin E, Vitamin K and contains essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6. 

With an aim to eliminate 1 Million PET plastic cooking oil bottles from going to landfill in Sri Lanka – the initiative will allow consumers to save both their health and the environment at the same time! 

Tovi Canola oil is recognised to be the healthiest of all vegetable/cooking oils due to is extremely low level of saturated fat.  With only 7% saturated fat Canola Oil is 13x times healthier than coconut oil (92% saturated fat) and 13x times healthier than palm oil.  It is globally recognised as being ‘heart healthy’ by the US FDA as it lowers cholesterol therefore reducing the risk of heart attack. 

“We are excited to be welcomed into the Good Market global community and to be launching our healthy canola oil Refill and Reuse station at Good Market Marketplace event on Saturday. Tovi Foods was formed with the belief of the Triple Bottom Line – People, Planet & Profit all being equal, and this aligns wonderfully with the good market credo of ‘good for people and good for the planet’.” - said Rob Hill, CEO.

Tovi will be offering refills of fresh, 100% pure and heart healthy canola oil from our Refill and Reuse kiosk, and customers can simply bring in an empty, clean bottle or Tovi will provide a fully reusable and recyclable glass bottle.  The Saturday Good Market happens every week from 9 am to 5 pm (rain or shine!) and is in the Nuga Tree Car Park behind the Ministry of Sports and next to the Colombo Racecourse.
