Supply Chain is one of the four pillars of our BALANCE platform. Under Supply Chain, our objective is to source sustainable and safe products through our responsible supply chain, and use our expertise and sizable purchasing power to inform and inspire suppliers to join us in the pursuit of industry-leading environmental, social and ethical best practices and business solutions.
Our key programs under Supply Chain include:
- Supply Chain Targets: established standards associated with our menu items and disposables to ensure availability of healthy and/or sustainable choices.
- Site-specific purchasing analysis and action planning: We can provide site specific purchasing analyses to report on the point of origin and/or production of our food purchases.
- Campaigns & Promotions: Our Eat Local 4 Seasons campaign promotes ingredients and products grown or processed in Canada and showcases seasonal recipes that are globally inspired.
- Local vendor community engagement opportunities: We are committed to working with local and regional suppliers to provide and promote local products in our menu selections, while ensuring our quality assurance standards are met.
