Bakery: Reducing Food Waste


When most people think of Publix, they think of our stores. But Publix is also a manufacturer, producing top-quality products that our stores are proud to sell and our customers love to buy.

In 2017, we diverted more than 30,000 tons of food waste by-products from our manufacturing plants—including whey from yogurt and cottage cheese from our Dairy plant—sent to farmers to feed their livestock, and scraps from Bakery production which is processed into animal feed.
