Ahold Delhaize USA
Circulate the plastic produced, by significantly increasing the amounts of plastics reused or recycled and made into new packaging or products.
Eliminate Unfavorable Materials
Ahold Delhaize USA’s companies will restrict the intentional use of chemicals of concern and place chemicals of concern, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Bisphenol A (BPAs), Phthalates and more on a restricted substance list for a full range of private brand products. The restricted list will cover both private brand products and food packaging for these products and work will focus on ensuring more sustainable substitutes for chemicals of concern are used.
