And, with a growing population – forecast to reach roughly 10.9 billion by 2100 – coupled with depleting natural resources, this situation is likely to get worse unless significant changes are made. 

Committing to change

Food waste is an issue that affects us all and is created by every stage of the food chain from agriculture and transportation to the retail outlets where consumers buy their groceries. In fact, of the 931 million tonnes of food waste generated globally in 2019, 13% or 121 million tonnes, came from the retail sector.

How can grocery retailers waste less and sell more?

Supermarkets are under mounting pressure to reduce food waste levels. Typically, retailers have relied on time-intensive, visual inspections to detect the sell-by dates on perishable products and manage replenishment needs, with less than half using an automated system to control inventory levels, but not expiry dates.
