Improving the Bottom Line

Problem

Landfill and transportation costs continue to increase as regulations, land usage and traditional fuel prices change. Sending food to the landfill wastes our valuable resources and has a significant negative impact on our environment. It’s also very costly for our retailers.


Solution

Utilizing Divert’s proprietary technology and food waste management platforms, we designed a cost effective decarbonization solution for one of our customers. We provided a standardized collection system with infrastructure to support reliable management of their unsold food to create the highest diversion solution for them possible. This, coupled with real-time tracking solutions, allowed us to create a baseline for each of their stores and continue to measure impact over time. Our hands-on support meant on-going store-level calibrations could adjust and right-size their pickup service accordingly.


Results

For this company’s +250 California stores, Divert improved their landfill diversion up to 90% within one year. In addition, our on-going store-level calibrations resulted in an average savings of $12,800 per store per year.
