BioHiTech, Sprouts Partner to Eliminate Food Waste in Philadelphia

BioHiTech's Revolution Series Digesters will provide a means to eliminate remaining food waste onsite.

BioHiTech Global announced the installation of BioHiTech Revolution Series Digester technology at Sprouts Farmers Market's first store in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia store is the latest location to receive the technology, which has been adopted in 18 Sprouts locations coast to coast.

“We are thrilled to be working with Sprouts to provide our innovative technology to drive zero waste initiatives and helping with the company's environmental footprint through lower CO2 [carbon dioxide] equivalents, reduced landfilling and improved operational efficiencies," said Frank E. Celli, CEO at BioHiTech, in a statement.

Sprouts said it shares BioHiTech's vision for sustainability through a "zero waste" commitment, which includes donating unsold and edible groceries to local charities and leveraging technology to keep non-edible and non-donatable foods out of landfills. These "zero waste" initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company's environmental footprint.

BioHiTech's Revolution Series Digesters complement Sprouts' zero waste initiatives by providing an efficient means to eliminate remaining food waste onsite. Real-time data and analytics from the BioHiTech Cloud allows team members to track, manage and reduce their food waste.
