How logistics helps reduce food waste

Food waste is one of the big problems of Czech retail and society as a whole. Combating it as part of a sustainability strategy is one of Penny’s long-term priorities. One of the most significant activities is the cooperation with the Czech Federation of Food Banks (CFFB), with which Penny started cooperation in 2017. In addition to regular contributions from food and drugstore companies, the company supports the logistics of food banks. In the spring of this year, a new CFFB logistics center was opened in Dubeč near Prague. How does food-bank logistics work and how can it help reduce the volume of food thrown away?
