    Abstract

    Dumeco, De Groene Weg and Albert Heijn want to reduce loss in the organic pork chain at the retailer. Loss is defined as price loss. Price loss is created due to price reduction at the ‘best before’ date, which indicates that the shelf life of the product has ended, and the returning of products as soon as the ‘best before’ date has expired. At product level loss in the organic pork chain is four times higher than in the regular pork chain! This is due to low and strongly fluctuating product flow of the organic pork assortment.
