GLRPPR Sector Resource: Checked Out: How U.S. Supermarkets Fail to Make the Grade in Reducing Food Waste

Title:
Checked Out: How U.S. Supermarkets Fail to Make the Grade in Reducing Food Waste

Abstract:
This report analyzes key food-waste reduction commitments, policies and actions across the top supermarket chains in the United States. Using publicly available information and details provided by company officials, we evaluated and graded 10 companies -- Ahold Delhaize, Albertsons, ALDI, Costco, Kroger, Publix, Target, Trader Joe's, Walmart and Whole Foods Market -- that operate a combined total of more than 13,000 grocery stores across the country. The analysis was also applied to Tesco U.K. as an example of a major European supermarket that has adopted effective food-waste reduction policies.
