Major Supermarket Chain Expands Waste Reduction Efforts To 40 Stores [Headlines]
Supermarket chain Supervalu is aiming to recycle more, waste less, and put a bigger effort into its Fresh Rescue food bank donation program in an effor to go "zero waste."
Supermarket chain Supervalu announced last week that it would be going zero waste in 40 stores. Starting primarily with stores in its Albertsons brand—which has already been trialling high-efficiency fiber optic lighting—but also looking to expand its waste reduction efforts across other stores it owns, the chain is planning to build on the achievements already made by two of its California stores. The store chain will be aiming to achieve this target through an ambitious drive for more recycling, waste reduction, composting, and its Fresh Rescue food bank donation program—which, it reports, donated over 60 million pounds of food across the whole Supervalu group last year.
