The purpose of the WMO program is to give a second life to the largest possible amount of cardboard, leftover food, and other waste generated at IGA supermarkets, by helping retailers improve their WMO.
A program tailored to the retailers’ reality
Developed in tandem with the Jour de la Terre Québec
team as part of the Fonds Éco IGA program, this new program will facilitate:
- The inclusion of the WMO concept in IGA stores during construction (new site, relocation, expansion, and renovations);
- The optimization of waste management in existing supermarkets.
The program is based on a continuous improvement principle and takes the reality faced by retailers into account.
