Food waste diversion.

When most people think of Publix, they think of our stores. But Publix is also a manufacturer, producing top-quality products that our stores are proud to sell and our customers love to buy.

In 2023, we diverted over 49 million pounds of food waste by-products from our manufacturing plants and sent them to farms to feed their livestock. Whey from yogurt and cottage cheese production at our Dairy plant and scraps from our Bakery were processed into animal feed.
