Southern New Hampshire University: 4-2 discussion: Farm-toTable and the Triple Bottom Line| people planet profit | Southern New Hampshire University
1. Locally sourced products are available in supermarkets: This can help them reduce their carbon footprint and still meet customers’ needs. To offer customers fresher and more sustainable products, supermarkets can partner with local farms or other independent food producers.
2. Try alternative packaging options: Because of their environmental impact, single-use plastics have become increasingly unpopular. Supermarkets should look at alternative packaging such as biodegradable and recycled materials to reduce waste and provide a better shopping experience.
3. Integrate organic farming methods: As consumers become more aware of the ingredients in their food, organic agriculture is gaining popularity. Investing in organic farming techniques allows supermarkets to address customers’ concerns about artificial chemicals that are used on traditional produce, while remaining competitive with stores selling comparable items at lower price points.
