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.
So what are we doing about it at Morton? We promise to eliminate food waste at Morton offices and operations across North America as part of our company’s broader sustainability goal of achieving Zero-Waste to Landfill status by 2030. We’ll get there through efficiencies that reduce waste salt in our production processes, investments in infrastructure at our facilities, and reuse/recycle efforts throughout the organization.
This work is already underway. For example, Morton Salt donated more than half-a-million pounds of finished 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.
