Sustainability - CulinArt Group

Sustainability

img-sustainability Sustainability is a journey, not a destination. CulinArt’s approach to sustainability is based on an active commitment to continuous innovation and growth. Our sustainability mission enables us to meet the diverse needs of our clients while simultaneously addressing the challenges of a rapidly changing food landscape: Our mission is to constantly innovate and evolve our culinary, social, environmental, and business practices in our venues (along our supply chains, and within our communities), exceeding the expectations of our clients, partners, and people, every day. We have established a Sustainability Framework that is built on three pillars: Food, Stewardship, and Experiences. Across these focus areas, our work is guided by these principles:

  1. We are committed to preparing delicious, innovative, high-quality food that meets the current and ever-changing needs of the marketplace;
  2. We build strong relationships with our clients and communities by being responsive, transparent, and responsible;
  3. Our sustainability programs are based on a continuous cycle of research, reflection, improvement, and communication;
  4. We prioritize the well-being of our clients, team members, partners, communities, and the environment.

What do these principles mean to CulinArt? They mean that as a company, CulinArt is committed to researching, understanding, and incorporating emerging best practices in procurement, facilities management, and health and wellness. They mean that while we understand that preparing delicious food that delights the senses is the core of our business, we also need to be financially, environmentally, and socially responsible. And, they mean that we recognize and work with the different needs, capabilities, and resources across different geographies and clients. We both learn from and lead clients every day.

How do these principles translate into sustainability practices? Our sustainability practices range from establishing purchasing standards to improve the sustainable profile of the goods we purchase, to assisting our clients in meeting their own goals for sustainability – whether it be reducing water and energy usage, to growing herbs and vegetables on company or campus grounds, eliminating use of Styrofoam, or composting kitchen scraps, among other things.

What our clients are saying

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Just wanted to thank you and the team at Lake Success for taking care of us for my daughter's birthday. I figured the event was going to be straight forward, but it felt like the event was treated with just as much care and attention to detail as a wedding or other big event, which was very much appreciated. You anticipated everything that we needed and are so capable, bravo! The party was 10x more beautiful and lovely in reality compared to how I imagined it, thanks to you guys.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“We were totally impressed by the presentation and care in which these new team members were brought into the CulinArt family. So happy we made the decision to choose CulinArt Group.”

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“Thank you so very much for the AMAZING dinner you provided for the President, Dean and Jim & Marilyn Simons. They really enjoyed it!! It was perfectly thought out and delicious. Your expertise and impeccable presentation and taste were truly appreciated!”
