"Concordia's Events Approved Caterers Success Fostered by Sustainability Policies"

The main purpose of this research project is to provide Concordia-approved caterers, which are all Small-Medium Enterprises (SME’s), a guidance towards sustainability-oriented policies so they can implement processes that benefit the Concordia community and the community at large, while capturing increased financial benefits. This research project involves gathering information in different ways and from different sources with the goal of obtaining a global perspective on how food services work at events run by the Concordia community. This project will provide an understanding of current advantages and areas of improvement, while providing three recommendations addressing three of SAFs sustainability issues: Waste Management, Sustainable Production and Consumption, as well as Community economic developments and alternative business models.

Themes: Food, Community, Waste
