Sept. 23, 2013: Food Lion Receives GreenChill Refrigeration Award

Award Is In Recognition of Food Lion Meeting Its Commitment for Reducing Refrigerant Emissions

SALISBURY, N.C. — Food Lion has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) 2012 Superior Goal Achievement Award, one of the agency’s honors for commercial refrigeration achievements by GreenChill Partners. Food Lion officials received the award at the FMI Energy & Store Development Conference in Baltimore.

This announcement “reinforces Food Lion’s commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen by reducing emissions, protecting the environment, and becoming more efficient as we enhance our customer shopping experience,” said Susan Sollenberger, director of energy, maintenance and equipment purchasing at Delhaize America South, which includes Food Lion stores. “We are honored to receive this award, and look forward to continuing to serve our communities.”

The award is in recognition of Food Lion meeting its GreenChill commitment for reducing refrigerant emissions.

“Food Lion has been a member of GreenChill since the partnership began in 2007,” said Tom Land, GreenChill Partnership manager. “Since then, Food Lion has continually renewed their commitment to reducing harmful refrigerant emissions. Earning a Superior Goal Achievement award is further evidence of this.”

Food Lion has won GreenChill’s Distinguished Partner Award and its Superior Environmental Achievement Award in the past. Food Lion has utilized various methods and technologies to save energy and reduce refrigerant leaks, including building two Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified stores in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
