Delhaize America: Food Lion & Hannaford
This report covers Delhaize Group’s operations in the U.S., at Food Lion and Hannaford stores. On this website you will also find information on our Group-wide strategy and achievements, as well as the accomplishments of other Delhaize Group operating companies.
In recent years, Delhaize America has made significant progress toward our 2020 Sustainability Ambition. Our Hannaford stores were the first grocery chain certified for sustainability by the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, and we have offered 100% sustainably sourced seafood since 2012. Building on these achievements, we focused much of our 2015 work on addressing other major environmental and social goals, such as increasing use of sustainable palm oil in our products, creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace, and accelerating hunger-relief programs in our communities.
At Delhaize America, we believe we have a tremendous opportunity and responsibility to ensure we operate in a sustainable way—whether it's giving back to our communities through philanthropic donations and associate volunteerism, serving as a leader in energy conservation, ensuring we have strong sustainability practices in our supply chain, or offering the best products to our customers. Sustainability is a strategic imperative for Delhaize America, and we intend to be an advocate for these practices to benefit our customers and communities.
