GLRPPR Sector Resource: 2013 Case Study: Dillons Food Stores (III)

Title:
2013 Case Study: Dillons Food Stores (III)

Abstract:
Dillon is a chain of grocery stores owned by Kroger, a company that operates 2,424 grocery stores, 791 convenience stores, and 348 jewelry stores. In 2013, they hired intern Kara Hall to determine methods to reduce the amount of excess food product being sent to the landfill from the two stores in Wichita, KS. Observation, data collection, and analysis of the processes at these two stores exposed solutions for source reduction and food diversion. Methods for food diversion in the bakery and produce departments were already implemented. Plans for changing shipping methods to reduce the waste from broken eggs are in effect, which could save more than $10,000 annually.
