Review all non-foods/disposable items used in the business
Are the items used today, appropriate for their use?
Take out containers, “doggie bag” items and items delivered by Uber Eats, et al – are you using the same packaging for each instance? Could you move to alternate lower-priced items for one or more use?
Are you using items today that you started using due to COVID-19 safety protocols but are no longer required or necessary?
Are you using plastic souffle cups when you could use “permanent ware” for condiments? A one-time investment for an on-going savings vs using plastic
Can you change out high-cost disposables made from polystyrene for products made from less expensive materials (paper)?
Promote sustainability where changes in material results in using more environmentally friendly products
Download the Pactiv app “VPA” or Virtual Product Assistant to find options that meet specific use cases such as maintaining temperature, resisting soak-through etc. This may lead users to lower cost options that fulfill the need.
Review the number of sizes/substrates being used. Is there an opportunity to reduce the number of individual items and reduce inventory complexity?
Are you using the same liner for the Slim Jim trash container as for the 32-gallon container? You are likely wasting money and failing to maximize usage. Perform a quick audit of your container sizes and dimensions to purchase optimal liners for each unit. Selecting the appropriate trash can liner for the job will create cost-savings over time.
