Today, 36 Kraft Foods facilities have achieved zero-waste-to-landfill status, including 24 plants in Europe and 12 facilities in North America.

Elsewhere, many plants have made significant reductions through partnerships to put waste to work. Kraft has a fact sheet of case histories on its website.
