Sustainable menus: a consumer trend driving food service

BUY ITEM | $ 24.95

When it comes to finding new and better ways to serve the consumer, the foodservice industry never sleeps. Nowadays, consumers want to know where their food was grown, using what methods and inputs, and more. 

Our speakers share approaches from A Guide To Sustainable Menus.  This tool was created to support sustainability in every aspect of foodservice planning including patient-centred service, choice of equipment, method of production and distribution. The guide provides recommendations for all aspects of foodservice including increasing the use of plant-based proteins, local and organic food procurement, less processed food, supportive ecological practices, reductions in food waste and reliance on supplements; and increased patient satisfaction.
