Aramark has begun using a new system to track, purchase and report on its sustainable practices.
The system, named Open Fields, allows foodservice vendors to create and monitor their own sustainability programs. Users can run their own metrics on various sustainability initiatives based on factors such as location, product, spend, attribute, farm/vendor, miles to location and distributor. Managers can also generate reports on their organization’s sustainable purchases.
Aramark says it’s using the software to track its sustainable purchases of products that are Fair Trade Certified, USDA organic and others.
