MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Provision Coalition is partnering with Loblaw Companies Limited to pilot a sustainability program for food-and-beverage manufactures in Ontario.
The program will provide support to 40 manufacturers over a three-year period. Each manufacturer will receive advice in developing or enhancing the company’s business strategy to ensure it is sustainable. This will include support for production and process changes that will improve employee culture, reduce environmental impacts and decrease operational costs within their facility.
“Provision Coalition is committed to working with Ontario’s 3,000-plus manufacturers on making meaningful aggregate reductions in the sector’s output of food waste and greenhouse gas emissions as two examples,” says Robert Cash, chair, Provision Coalition. “Collaborating with Loblaw Companies Limited has demonstrated the importance and value of working across the supply chain in achieving common sustainability goals.”
