Bon Appetit Management Tracks Carbon Cost of Food

Bon Appetit Management Company, the food service used by many universities and corporations including Washington University, Nordstrom and Target, is introducing a new program to lower its carbon footprint, Student Life reports.Changes, beginning on Earth Day, include sourcing all of their meat, poultry and vegetables from North America to reduce the transportation of food.The company will also provide information about low- and high-carbon meals and the carbon impact of certain foods over that of others.The company says the initiative will be cost-neutral. “Some components will cost a little more, some less,” said Maisie Greenawalt, director of communications and strategic initiatives. “The big component in greenhouse emissions is waste. There will be a big push in reducing waste, then in helping consumers reduce their waste next year. Buying products in the U.S. that are more expensive will be offset by waste savings.”
