IGA (Independent Grocers of Australia) is Australia’s largest network of independent supermarkets. Edge has been supporting the IGA network for many years on various sustainability related projects.
In early 2021 Edge was engaged to develop a formal sustainability strategy, that would help the network compete with some of the other large supermarkets on sustainability. Recognising the independent ownership model of the network, this required a flexible framework that enabled each store to ‘choose their own path’ based on their level of ambition and requirements from their local community.
Edge is currently supporting Metcash and the network roll out the various inititiaves outlined in the strategy.
