Sustainable Product Packaging
Kroger recognizes the important role we play as a good steward of the environment, including efforts to reduce packaging and increase recyclability. We focus on reducing waste as part of our commitment to be a zero waste company by 2020 and as part of our Zero Hunger ǀ Zero Waste social impact plan.
Kroger has set goals to improve the sustainability of Our Brands product packaging: By 2020, Kroger will optimize packaging in corporate brands by following a balanced, multi-pronged approach that considers design attributes including but not limited to food safety, shelf life, availability, quality, material type and source, function, recyclability and cost. This goal has multiple parts, which can be reviewed in our 2020 Sustainability Goals.
Through our focus on Our Brands packaging, we aim to reduce the amount of plastics and unsustainable virgin fibers in our packaging and increase recycled content and recyclability.
