Kraft Foods Cuts Manufacturing Waste

Kraft Foods is making steady progress in reducing the amount of manufacturing waste produced and consequently its environmental impact. The global food and beverages producer now has 36 facilities in 13 countries sending zero waste to landfills, including 24 plants in Europe and 12 facilities in North America, and has cut its manufacturing waste by 50% since 2005. Furthermore, the group now recycles or reuses about 90% of its manufacturing waste.

“We’re waging war on waste, one plant at a time,” says Christine McGrath, vice president, Global Sustainability. “Our strategy is simple: generate less waste and find new uses for the waste we do produce.  And our employees are doing just that.”

For Kraft Foods, manufacturing accounts for the vast majority of its solid waste output, so its plants are a natural place to take action. In 2007, the company launched a program with the global recycling company Sonoco Recycling, using its Sonoco Sustainability Solutions (S3) service offering to substantially reduce waste in plants with the ultimate objective of sending zero waste to landfill.
