Taking the lead on food waste
We are committed to fighting food waste and have set an ambitious target for ourselves: Halving food waste by 2030.
Denmark against Food Waste
Along with a number of Denmark’ largest food producers and organisations we are behind an ambitious, national partnership – Denmark against Food Waste (Danmark mod Madspild). Because we believe that by combining efforts, sharing experience and committing to targets, we can make a difference.

Making the most from surplus food
Even if the apple has a spot or the tin is dented, we think the food is still to good to throw away. We work closely with organisations that share that attitude – including the Danish Food Bank, which hands out surplus food to disadvantaged citizens and Wefood, whose shops sell surplus groceries at a discounted price.
On track towards our targets
Since 2014, we have reduced the food waste across Salling Group by 27 percent. That means we are well underway towards our long-term target: Halving our food waste from 2014-2030.
Sharing our figures on food waste
Each year, 700,000 tonnes of food is wasted in Denmark alone. That figure needs to be brought down – and we believe that openness and ambitious targets are important parts of the solution. That is why as the first Danish retailer, we have made our food waste figures publically available.
