While the concept of sustainability is a rather simple one, putting it into practice can be challenging in foodservice. Switching to “green” products, re-furbishing your operation and incorporating new equipment can be expensive – not just in product cost but also in assigned resources.
The new entegraPS.com includes a variety of materials to help any procurement specialist work toward meeting their sustainability objectives. If you are not a current customer, we encourage you to check back here at our public blog often for insights on how to meet your foodservice operation’s business goals. Current customers who log in to entegraPS.com will find the following:
- Sustainable Seafood – A listing of entegra-contracted seafood that is certified sustainable as well as a brochure that shows which species are more abundant and those that are at risk of becoming endangered.
- Antibiotic-Free Poultry – Information on products by Perdue Farms, our exclusive supplier of premium antibiotic-free, all-vegetarian fed and all natural poultry.
- Energy Efficient Equipment – Entegra’s Performance Interiors brand equipment purchasing team has identified offerings that meet sustainability criteria. Examples include Energy Star certified equipment, such as Blodget Ovens and Hobart dish machines.
