Food waste in retail chains in Poland
There are big differences between the 2 largest retail chains in Poland and the amount of food donated: Little and Pythronka. Stores make up about 5% of food losses in Poland, but only food retailers and wholesalers are obliged by law to combat food waste, and must conclude an agreement with NGOs regarding the provision of free food. In addition, store owners need to organize advertising campaigns to encourage consumers not to waste. The financial statements of Geronimo Martின்nez Polka and Little Polka show that the entire chain of Little stores generates 2.5 times less revenue than the Pitranga discount stores. The reason is a small number of outlets (there are about 760 Little stores and about 3120 Bytranga stores). However, if a turnover created by Geronimo Martின்nez Polka reaches Little, it will give 60 times less food than Pythronka. In fact, Pytranga is at the forefront of the food donated to PLN 1ml of revenue, but these are still small compared to the total food revenue of this chain. By this comparison, Little seems to be a master at managing product offerings.
