Work abroad includes the use of self-dispensing cereal containers by Australian grocery stores. Shoppers either scoop the cereal of their choice from a fixed airtight dispenser into a plastic bag, or pull the lever of an inverted container, allowing the cereal to fall into a plastic bag held beneath.
