Chris Cochran

The Senior Manager of Sustainability, Walmart

In his role as Executive Director, Chris provides strategic oversight to the entire ReFED organization and all program areas. Previously, Chris was the Senior Manager of Sustainability at Walmart where he developed a farm to consumer view of food waste while leading sustainability for Walmart’s global produce business. Chris developed a first-of-its-kind food waste analysis for Walmart US that resulted in food waste reduction and donation opportunities that put the company on track to achieve its public commitments to cut food waste in half and donate four billion meals. Chris’s experience with tackling food waste from multiple points in the value chain helps ReFED bring together new collaborators on food system challenges.
