Sainsury's says supermarket waste to be turned into petfood


sainsburysl_415x275Waste food from Sainsbury’s supermarket stores in Northern Ireland is to be turned into petfood, animal feed and other materials instead of going in to a landfill, says Lawrence Christensen, head of Sainsbury’s environmental action team.

It is the first step in a commitment made by Sainsbury’s to end the use of landfill sites. The company aims to have no food waste going to landfill by next spring, and no waste of any kind ending up in landfill by the end of 2009.
