Well done, you’re at the end of an Introduction to Sustainable Practices in Food Service. We hope you have enjoyed learning more about sustainability, after all; understanding more about why it is essential and what we can do to bring about change will significantly impact on how we live and care for our planet and people.

Before you move onto your test, let’s wrap up.

Why do we need to become more sustainable in food service? A sustainable business makes good business sense.

The business depends on consumers, and consumers are becoming more demanding in their choices. If a business is not prepared to accommodate their needs, they will find one that will.

Hotels and restaurants have a significant impact on the environment, using a lot of non-renewable natural resources and producing a lot of waste and carbon emissions, all negatively affecting climate change.

Many responsible food service organizations are changing, implementing sustainable policies, and making choices that positively impact the planet and its people.

Now test your knowledge on what you have learned so far. This should prepare you for your final assessment.
