Bon Appétit Management Company has been recognized by the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) for decades of leadership in the sustainable purchasing movement, which emphasizes using their purchasing power to advance the long term health and vitality of society, economies, and the planet. Bon Appétit received the SPLC’s Leadership Award for Overall Sustainable Purchasing Program, the council’s highest honor.
The leadership award winners were selected by a panel of judges based on a case study that outlined their program’s resulting environmental, social, and/or economic benefits. The case study documents the history, breadth, and depth of the company’s commitments and quantifies their impact in five areas: local purchasing, appropriate use of antibiotics in agriculture, sustainable seafood, the food–climate change connection (including to fighting food waste), and humanely raised meat and eggs.
