Five methods that grocery stores use to prevent food waste – the popularity of red-flagged products is still growing

Grocery stores combat food waste and invest in its prevention in many ways. Customers of K-food stores can now contribute to reducing food waste by purchasing products made with food that would otherwise have been wasted, such as fruit and vegetable boxes and bread bags. At the same time, the popularity of red-flagged products continues to grow, and a variety of products made with potential waste food can now be found on store shelves. Biogas from inedible waste food is used in processes such as the production of Pirkka Amppari ice cream.
