How Can Reusable Assets Help Retailers and Growers Achieve Zero Waste Goals?

written by IFCO SYSTEMS, 27th April 2017, in Stories

Increasingly, consumers are rewarding grocery retailers that are committed to sustainable operations and a sustainable supply chain. In fact, the vision for the future is a circular economy and a circular supply chain that generates zero waste and zero emissions. According to the Ellen Macarthur Foundation, shared and reusable platforms, like Reusable Plastic Containers, are a perfect match for retailers seeking to optimize sustainability along their fresh produce supply chains and reach our shared goal of a circular economy.

To learn the sustainability benefits of shared and reusable fresh produce packaging versus one-way packaging, join the second segment of our 3-part webinar series: Remove the Risk: Using Data to Drive Fresh Produce Growth on May 11, 2017. Details on this upcoming webinar are listed below.
