The New Jersey Food Council (NJFC) and other regional partners will present Jim D'Arcy, of The Great A&P Tea Co., with the Loss Prevention Professional Award at the Northeast Regional Conference on Loss Prevention, which will take place on Oct. 28 at Forsgate Country Club, in Monroe Township, N.J.
As VP of loss prevention and food safety for Montvale, N.J.-based A&P, D'Arcy oversees all center store stock loss, perishable shrink, food safety, quality assurance, store audit and safety initiatives, as well as managing crisis management, operations data analysis and store-operating expenses.
"Jim is an integral part of the loss prevention leadership team of the New Jersey Food Council, where he serves as chair of the loss prevention conference planning committee and vice chair of the loss prevention committee," noted Linda Doherty, president of Trenton-based NJFC. "Our accomplished loss prevention agenda and activity are based on the input and insights of Jim."
Before joining A&P in 2009, D'Arcy, a former police officer and current volunteer firefighter, was asset protection and operations manager at The Home Depot for five years.
Fighting Organized Retail Theft
Additionally, the conference's regional partners will present the Retail Law Enforcement Achievement Award to Loretta Taylor and Michael Salvatore, of the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, for their help, along with that of NJFC, in creating an organized retail theft task force video, which was shown at the 2013 Loss Prevention Conference.
NJFC represents 1,200 retail food stores, wholesalers, manufacturing and service companies that collectively employ more than 200,000 associates in the Garden State.
