Keeping food safe for our customers—no matter how they choose to shop with us—is part of everything we do, and a condition of working with Kroger for our suppliers and partners. Food safety, quality assurance and regulatory compliance are at the core of our operations across all facets of our business.
Our Risk Mitigation Strategy extends across our entire business to ensure all company-operated facilities meet or exceed all food safety laws and standards. We establish and maintain science-based food preparation and handling practices, as well as develop and implement programs to address emerging food safety topics. Kroger’s food safety team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support our retail stores, manufacturing plants and distribution centers.
