The Kroger Co. has received the Rainforest Alliance’s Supply Chain Partnership Award for its Home Sense tissue products sourcing program.
“Kroger is proud to receive the first supply chain partnership award for our Home Sense tissue products,” said Jessica Adelman, Kroger’s GVP of corporate affairs, in a statement. “This award is especially unique in that it is recognizing the commitments to a responsible and sustainable supply chain of both Kroger and our supplier-partner, Clearwater Paper. Through Clearwater’s work in certifying their wood pulp, Kroger’s Home Sense brand is the largest U.S. private label rolled tissue product business that is FSC certified by the Rainforest Alliance.”
The Rainforest Alliance says its third-party certification process helps ensure millions of acres of working forests and farms are managed according to rigorous sustainability standards. Kroger’s Private Selection Coffees, Private Selection Roses, Home Sense tissues and other rolled tissue products feature the Rainforest Alliance’s green frog seal.
