The Challenge

ICA Kvantum Sannegården, situated in Gothenburg’s Lindholmen district, set its sights on addressing the challenge of food waste in alignment with the “Denmark Against Food Waste” initiative, inspired by UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3. The store faced several hurdles, including labor-intensive manual date checking, reliance on static discounts, and the need to involve customers in the fight against food waste.

Their dynamic pricing tool worked in harmony with date checking, offering personalized discounts for more informed customer decisions. A discount label printer simplified operations and gained staff praise for efficiency.
