More companies for LESS food waste -
KLUTH is a member of the 10x20x30 initiative against food waste
10 of the largest retail chains have each selected and motivated 20 of their suppliers to reduce their food waste in the value chain by half by (20) 30.
KLUTH and METRO are working side by side towards this goal.
The Kluth Group announces that it has joined the "10x20x30" initiative in cooperation with METRO to halve food loss and waste within its supply chain by 2030.
10x20x30 is led by METRO as one of the world's top 10 food retailers and suppliers committed to engaging their top 20 suppliers to halve food loss and waste within the supply chain by 2030.
As a trader of high-quality natural foods, it has always been the Kluth Group's true interest to keep food waste within the value chain as low as possible in order to use limited natural resources as efficiently and sustainably as feasible. Sustainability is integrated into all areas of the business and the company has committed itself under the motto "green packaged" (www.grün-verpackt.de).
The company has always paid particular attention to responsible handling of food. If products do run out of their minimum shelf-life, are damaged during transport or are part of a faulty production, the company has its own measures to return the products to other cycles - and to enable sensible consumption.
"We try to keep the amount of food waste in our processes as low as possible," reports Jessica Kluth, who is the third generation of the family-run business. "We abide by the principle of continuous improvement in our group of companies and are very much looking forward to new impulses and strategies by cooperating in the 10x20x30 initiative. We are motivated and proud to be able to make our contribution to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal. The goal of halving food waste by 2030 is worth every effort and endeavour".
