Deli: Reducing Packaging Materials


We always look to improve—and in this case, less is more. We eliminated 35 million separate date, price, and product description labels by consolidating this information onto a single-scale label that acts as a security seal on the packaging, which reduces the chance of product spillage.

As a result of this change, we also saved 92,000 labor hours, allowing our Deli associates more time for what’s really important: our customers.
