I know, I know, you have a lot of questions. What foundation? What change? Who built the foundation? Allow me.


Introduction to Kroger

Kroger is the 5th largest retail company in the world that has maintained its rank throughout the years. Along with its rank, it has maintained the services, the quality of their products while keeping in mind their employees and looking after their environment. It is a 137 year old company that came into being in 1883 in Cincinnati, Ohio. But it spread in the world due to its exquisite flavor and amazing service. And yet it still somehow tops the chart.

Introduction to the foundation

You might be curious about the foundation. Well, let me start with its name. The name of this foundation is Zero Hunger/Zero Waste. Now, the history of this foundation. Well, it was born almost 3 years ago in September 2017 when Kroger announced its launch. It had a big and bold social impact plan. It was actually made to eradicate waste by the year 2025. Now you might be thinking how can a 3 year old plan change the world now? My guess is a Pandemic. Earlier in 2020, the world was introduced to a deadly disease names as Covid-19 or Corona virus, which took the lives of many people around the world, shaking the world to its core. The businesses were shut down, IN SHORT, the whole world was on lockdown. This pandemic made people re-think about the sources they had. They had a limited amount of money and with limited money comes the hard job of filling the stomachs. They had to be observant over the fact that what they were eating and how much were they wasting.

Kroger stood up for help. Even though it is a huge empire, it still can’t help provide resources to the whole world especially under this big of a crisis but it provided resources to its employees to cut waste and enjoy simpler meals at home.

Foundation’s help to Kroger’s customers and stores

They can now recycle plastic bags or other useless stuff at Kroger stores to produce some useful stuff. They also have made initiatives and help to provide their customers if they want any ideas on how to recycle at home.

Kroger’s suppliers and subsidiaries have also joined the foundation. Which in my opinion would make a big impact on the world as well since Kroger has joined hands with such big companies and empires like Ralphs and Food 4 Less along with many more.

Its only unity and hard work that we will achieve success on bigger scales especially when the world is under crises. In my opinion, the foundation is such a big start for helping people and I really hope that other companies learn from this too, and then TOGETHER makes this world a better place to live so that Corona virus or any other disease or issue would never shake Earth’s core.
