Kroger Circular Packaging Solutions

Kroger

Kroger partners with CHEP and IFCO, which both contribute to global sustainability through their "shared" business models of pooled pallets, bulk containers and reusable plastic containers (RPCs). These packaging solutions bring both operational efficiencies and environmental benefits. Compared with one-way packaging, reusable platforms and containers offer a lower carbon footprint, reduced water consumption and less waste.
