Bon Appetit Management Company Leads Food Service Industry In Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Food Waste

Summary: 

* According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, landfills are the largest human-related source of methane in the US, accounting for 34 percent of all methane emissions - much of which comes from the food we throw away.

* By April 2009, Bon Appétit Management Company, the nation’s leader in sustainable dining services, had reduced food waste generated in its over 400 cafes by 20% through a variety of innovate measures.

* The weekly reduction in CO2 emissions from Bon Appetit's reduction and diversion in food waste in their cafes is equivalent to between 40 and 50 tons.

* Waste reduction is part of Bon Appétit’s Low Carbon Diet, created in 2007 as a way to reduce the company’s carbon emissions associated with food production by 25% over three years. A focus on carbon reduction through food waste and other avenues is a natural extension of Bon Appétit’s decade-long commitment to local sourcing, supporting small owner-operated farms, animal welfare, sustainable seafood and numerous other policies that are firsts for food service and move the needle on ethical business practices for the entire industry.
