Question for you.

For all the questions we ask about our food, why don’t we ask more questions about where our food ends up?

  • Food for thought.

    We believe food should be treasured, not trashed.
    Yet about 40% of the food produced in the U.S. goes to waste. This affects the environment, the economy and those facing hunger.
    It’s time to #EraseFoodWaste.

    Morton Salt has launched its Erase Food Waste commitment to help educate consumers about the issue of food waste and create opportunities for broad-scale change. This is the first step in our journey to help evolve the conversation from food waste to food worth.  

    It’s all part of our Walk Her Walk brand promise to make a positive impact in the world.   

    So what are we doing about it at Morton? Morton aims to eliminate food waste at its offices and operations by 2030. This target will be driven by a variety of strategies and initiatives including efficiencies that reduce waste salt in Morton Salt’s production processes, investments in infrastructure at the company’s facilities, and reuse/recycle efforts throughout the organization.

    This work is already underway. For example, Morton Salt donated more than 500,000 pounds of food products to Feeding America and other reuse organizations in 2017 as part of our commitment to reducing food waste.

    Morton will also work with consumers, communities, business partners, trade associations, non-profit organizations and other stakeholders to find ways to fight food waste together in an effort to address hunger in our communities and protect our planet. Because we know we can’t end food waste alone.
