Food is a powerful medium, elevating culture, nourishing us all, and bringing people together through love and celebration. Food brings us even closer together in times of need. We are inspired by Compass Group USA chefs and front-line associates’ bravery, dedication, and commitment, doing what they love and what we so desperately needed in these trying times. They are our Heroes.
It takes remarkable collaboration and everyone doing their part to create a positive impact in these challenging times. Without the unwavering support of our dedicated clients, we could not have accomplished all we have this year. To you, we say a heartfelt Thank You! We are so very proud of all that we have done together.
Through food, we can create global change.
While we look to the future, we are replanting and reconnecting with our food system in a collective effort to create the change we need through food. In its current state, the food system is the leading cause of climate change. We are working hard to change that system by leveraging our scale to be more socially and environmentally responsible, continuing our push for transparency, and creating a culture of change. There is more work to do, and we are committed to doing the right thing for both people and the planet.
As the world has changed, our commitment has gone beyond food. We are working to keep you and your guests safe while also being responsible stewards of our environment. In the pages that follow, you will see how deeply “doing the right thing” is embedded in our company culture. It isn’t just who we are; it is in everything we do.
We are committed to serving food that will not only nourish but will create restorative change. We are menuing more local produce, mitigating food waste while increasing our food recovery efforts and embarking on the journey toward regenerative agriculture. Through these practices, we can heal our world for the generations yet to come.
Above all, as challenging as this year has been, it has given us hope and shown us that anything is possible when we work together.
