Up to 133 billion pounds of food is wasted annually in the U.S. alone. This translates to a cost of $162 billion. There is much that grocers can do to rein in the squandering of such a precious resource.


The infographic below outlines the causes of the perishables problem and presents ways that a demand-driven replenishment model can help grocers better anticipate supply requirements, improve storage and maintain food freshness. In our experience, a demand-driven replenishment model can reduce spoilage by as much as 50%, reduce inventory and related costs by up to 20% and increase sales by up to 2.5%.
