Sainsbury’s: Verminderen afval/verlies appels in supply chain

22 januari 2016

In a project with WRAP, Sainsbury’s looked at their supply chain to map key sources of apple waste and loss, and to identify and trial solutions to reduce this waste. It was found that levels of waste were actually fairly low, indicating good practices, yet opportunities to reduce this further were identified, trialled and are being rolled out across all stores.
Among the key findings: Primary and secondary packaging changes have the potential to reduce Sainsbury’s apple waste by over 125 tonnes and save over £100,000; The packaging changes are directly applicable to other produce lines, meaning significant further opportunities for Sainsbury’s and other companies to reduce waste.
