Musgrave has today (26 January) signed the Government’s Food Waste Charter, which is focused on a common approach to the issue of food waste across the retail sector.
The aim of the Food Waste Charter is to ensure 'that no food that is fit for human consumption is wasted, but is instead used to alleviate food poverty'.
"Musgrave, as Ireland’s largest community retailer, is committed to building sustainable communities and supporting consumers to make better purchasing decisions.” Chris Martin, CEO Musgrave said.
“With a business of our scale, we recognise our responsibility to make positive impact on the world around us. This means sustainability is integral to doing the right thing by our people, our communities and our business.”
Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Denis Naughten said: “Musgrave have taken on the challenge of food waste and made it a central element of their sustainability agenda. This illustrates their drive to identify innovative food waste reduction opportunities from the corporate to the store level.
“Taking part in the Retail Action Group highlights their commitment to collaborate in this area and encourage others to sign the Charter and work towards reducing food waste.”
