• Supply Chain

    Supplying America

    The importance of a healthy supply chain has never been more critical to our communities than in the face of this global pandemic. As the nation’s largest supermarket retailer, Kroger’s extensive supply chain is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our customers and communities.

    In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we reinforced our supply chain best practices by monitoring rapidly changing consumer trends, focusing on in-demand products, maintaining high productivity and prioritizing the health and safety of our associates.

    To help businesses of all sizes continue to operate their supply chains safely and efficiently during uncertain times, we’re sharing the steps we’ve taken to safeguard our employees while supporting significant increases in demand.


    “Efficient and successful supply chain functions are the core of every business. Navigating increased demands while heightening associate safety is critical to the health of your organization.”

    -Robert Clark
    Senior Vice President of Supply Chain and Manufacturing
