The Challenge

Meny Værløse, located near Copenhagen in Denmark, is part of the Dagrofa-owned grocery store chain. The store is dedicated to combatting food waste and has signed the national voluntary agreement “Denmark Against Food Waste,” inspired by UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3. The commitment requires members to reduce waste by at least 50% by 2030. Before adopting digital solutions, Meny Værløse faced two major challenges: 

Expiry date management was a time-consuming and tedious task.
The store incurred financial losses due to food waste.

The Solution

In 2019, Meny Værløse began its journey with Invafresh by incorporating parts of its digital toolbox. They became the first store in Denmark to digitize their datechecking processes, making them more efficient. They integrated a label printer with Invafresh systems, and the labels not only served as eye-catchers but also attracted more foot traffic in the store. Shoppers visited more frequently to check out discounted products, thanks to Invafresh’s discount label printer, which streamlined markdowns.

The Results

Since 2019, Meny Værløse has been utilizing Invafresh’s advanced Expiry Management solution, revolutionizing their everyday operations. By implementing these solutions, they achieved an average of 37% less food waste, although the exact percentages varied across different store departments. The app provides the store with a daily list of products at risk of expiration and their locations, enabling staff to identify and address them promptly. Products close to expiry are marked down, ensuring they are sold and ultimately enjoyed at customers’ dinner tables. The app’s ease of use has simplified employee onboarding, allowing new team members to quickly adapt to the store’s routines.
