Dollar Grocers shares challenges and successes of establishing a food scraps recycling program in a grocery store.
Overwaitea Food Group ramps up its organics recycling program by focusing on preventing and recycling food waste from prep and sales areas. The grocery retailer also has a strategy for managing packaged food waste.
Choices Markets in the Lower Mainland recycles food scraps from their own locations, processes them into beautiful compost, and sells it to their customers during the peak growing season. A perfect closed loop.
Enterra Feed Corporation in Vancouver receives feedstock, sourced from grocery stores and food distributors, and up-cycles the nutrients into sustainable protein and oils, to feed fish and livestock, and a natural organic fertilizer used for soil conditioning to increase crop yields.
Portland Oregon has had a similar food scraps disposal ban in place. Find out how the
New Seasons Market saved over $25,000 in waste management costs, reduced their garbage by 30%, and increased their donations of healthy food, all while growing their business.
