IGA – Household Food Waste Avoidance

Recovery Strategies

Household Food Waste Avoidance

Edge partnered with Metcash, the managing company of IGA Supermarkets for a grant with the EPA Love Food Hate Waste Program. As part of this program, Edge developed a food waste emissions calculator to help IGA customers understand the emissions resulting from their food waste. This was combined with a consumer facing marketing campaign aimed at educating customers on methods to reduce food waste at home.
