Retail Food Sector Waste Management


Retail food sector waste management allows businesses to focus on sales areas, not warehouse space. Efficient waste handling in the goods reception area frees up space and time for selling.

Space matters

The retail food industry spreads across a variety of different types of outlets, for example convenience stores, supermarkets and large hypermarkets. Supplies arrive several times a week, mostly packed in cardboard and soft plastic.

Most businesses unpack their goods immediately, quickly moving the goods into the shop area. Afterwards the waste is emptied into containers or compactors outside to keep internal passages clear and tidy.

By installing a compact baler inside the building, close to the source of the waste, employees can dispose of the empty packaging waste instantly and safely, without leaving the premises. An advantage that is especially desirable during late opening hours, when staffing often is reduced to sometimes just a few or perhaps just one person.

Improved operations and working environment

In our experience a thorough check of how waste is handled most often reveals considerable cost savings are within reach in retail food businesses. Compacting cardboard boxes, soft plastic and other recyclable materials into high-density bales inside the shop area is both fast and safe for employees. It also frees up space and reduces daily operation costs.

Bramidan’s baler solutions are ideal for food retail businesses of any size. Whether you own a small shop, a supermarket or full sized hypermarket, the ability to swiftly deal with loose waste improves both efficiency and the working environment.

Improve the internal workflow

When your staff compact waste inside, close to the waste source, they ensure both a tidy workplace and a smoother workflow.

We can help you choose the right baler solution, so you will not only experience better internal logistics, but also increased revenues on recyclable materials.

Advantages to your Business:

  • Faster return on investment
  • Easier waste handling
