How Do Supermarkets Cut Down on Trim?
Preventing unnecessary spoilage leads to more sustainable operations
A recent study conducted at a major US supermarket chain store showed that ECONOFROST Reflective Night Covers reduced supermarket waste by 75%. The test demonstrated how reducing the amount of produce trimmed from food displays brought the store their return on investment in just over four months.
One store's produce department manager reported an “average decline in trim from one barrel a day to one quarter barrel a day,” eliminating produce losses of $50 to $65 per day and reducing labor needed to maintain produce displays. It was reported that the store saved more than $8000 over a five month test period in the typical large supermarket setting.
With effective Econofrost thermal blinds to protect your refrigerated display cases overnight, you can reduce the costs of labor needed for daily trimming, rotating and maintaining the best fresh appearance of fresh merchandise.
