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

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“Just a note to let you know that you ROCK! You always pour yourself into [The] Webb [Schools] to make the dining experience the very best it can be. I’ve been hearing such positive things about the food quality this year – something I hope you feel really good about. And it is times like this with the Coronavirus that leaders truly emerge. You have been unbelievably accommodating in making last minute changes to how we serve, etc. and all else we do in the dining hall and I just want you to know how much I deeply appreciate your devotion to this special community. You are a key part of it – you model beautifully the very best of Webb. So thank you!!”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“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…”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”
