Supermarkets prepare for sustainability, concrete measures still limited
Supermarkets are preparing to play a greater role in making the food system more sustainable. They are doing so by measuring their current performance and setting ambitious targets for the future. Concrete measures in product range, promotion and shop layout are still pending. On the one hand, supermarkets are not yet using much of their influence to make agriculture more sustainable or, on the other hand, make Dutch diets more sustainable. In the 2023 ranking, Ekoplaza, Lidl and Albert Heijn lead the way. Plus, lags most.
