Kroger's Sustainable Packaging Partnership In View at Innovation & Collaboration Summit


Customers are interested not only in a product’s attributes, but also in its effect on the environment. At Store Brands' 2016 Innovation & Collaboration Summit, Marcio DaCosta, vice president of global sourcing and planning for The Kroger Co., and Dave Connors, president of Pratt Display (a division of Pratt Industries), will describe the unique partnership between Kroger and Pratt Display that supports Kroger’s zero-waste-to-landfill goals. The session will share lessons learned and illustrate how sustainability efforts could benefit retailers' brands and lighten companies' environmental impact.

Store Brands' Innovation & Collaboration Summit will be held Aug. 15-17 at the Hyatt Grand Cypress hotel in Orlando, Fla. The event will feature an innovation-focused education program that will help retailers, suppliers and service providers take today's store brand programs to the next level. In addition, the summit will provide opportunities for private meetings between retailers and private label suppliers/service providers — and plenty of networking time for everyone.

Created with the guidance of Store Brands' Advisory Board, the event is the only conference of its kind in the United States. Attendees will learn how to identify untapped or under-tapped private brand opportunities, achieve greater profitability and faster time to market, and forge mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships.

Sessions will cover topics ranging from sustainability and transparency to European success stories, regulatory challenges and omnichannel opportunities.
