At Aramark we believe sustainability is an important part of our future focus.  Sustainability involves watchful stewardship of our natural resources y being watchful about water use and proper recycling.

Most of our retail operations at University Hospital serve food in containers that are recyclable or recycled. We try to be strategic when ordering food by ordering in quantities that makes sense to avoid leftovers. Since 2005 Aramark has reduced 15 million pounds of food waste.

We source responsibly; 100% of our cod and canned tuna comes from sustainable sources. We have also instituted a coffee refill program. Additionally, we have reduced plastic straw use by 20%.

Our pre-consumer waste program is in place which means we collect food that is trimmed in the cooking process. We place the waste in holding containers and give the food to local farmers to feed to their livestock.

Sustainability is responsibility for the future of our planet. We all can have a hand in ensuring a good quality of life for generations to come By conserving water, watching our waste, and recycling responsibly.
