Aramark and Compass Group have pledged their support to the Pacific Coast Food Waste Commitment’s (PCFWC) goal of reducing food waste.

The PCFWC aims to cut food waste by 50% along the West Coast of the United States by 2030 by encouraging organizations to collaborate with each other on achieving sustainability targets. Aramark and Compass Group will work with existing PCFWC member Sodexo to develop best practices and share data with other foodservice providers with the goal of attaining a more sustainable food system.

“As an extension of our mission to do great things for people and the planet, Aramark is committed to reducing food waste across our operations with the goals of conserving resources, reducing food insecurity, and minimizing our environmental footprint,” said Alan Horowitz, Aramark Vice President of Sustainability. “Participating in the Pacific Coast Food Waste Commitment lets us work with our industry peers to continue driving our sustainability efforts forward, while also encouraging others in the space to do their part. By working together, we can increase everyone’s contribution.”
