Today, Spoiler Alert announced that it has received a Green Supply Chain Award for 2018 from Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
"We're thrilled to close out the year with this recognition from Supply & Demand Chain Executive," states Spoiler Alert CEO Ricky Ashenfelter. "Improving the management of distressed and unsold inventory is a critical step to preventing food waste and improving a business's bottom-line. We believe that sustainability and supply chain efficiency should drive profitability, and this acknowledgment is a testament to that."
The 11th annual Green Supply Chain Award recognizes companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy, and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and supply chains. The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals.
The past year saw exciting advancements with Spoiler Alert's mission to address inefficiencies in food supply chains. In April, the company announced ongoing results of its partnership with HelloFresh; in May, CEO Ricky Ashenfelter participated in a food waste roundtable with USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue; and in October, we shared that Maersk, the global logistics leader, invested in the company as part of a strategic round of financing.
"This year's award recipients place a critical emphasis on green initiatives within their companies and supply chains," says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Entries provide examples of innovative approaches and impressive metrics of sustainability programs. We congratulate this year's honorees for their commitment to sustainability and recognize their tremendous achievements," Yuva adds. "Our honorees serve as role models for supply chains globally to expand their reach and impact of green leadership."
