Here at Aramark, providing exceptional service to our customers and clients is just the start. Our mission is to enrich and nourish lives, so when we interact with millions of people and communities across the globe, we strive to ensure we’re serving them with integrity, respect and in the most responsible way possible.
Every day, we work to develop innovative product and service solutions that put our social responsibility goals into action. We focus our energies on initiatives that support our diverse workforce, protect our environment, advance consumer health and wellness and strengthen our communities.
Our approach to Corporate Responsibility:
We’re a global company that touches millions of people’s lives every day. Our size and reach gives us the opportunity to minimize environmental impacts in hundreds of locations in our operations and in our communities.
Green Thread, our environmental sustainability commitment, symbolizes our approach to weave environmental sustainability into everything we do. We make progress every day on our commitment to source responsibly, minimize waste, operate efficiently, and optimize transportation and fleet.
We constantly seek to improve our own practices, and we offer our expertise to find practical solutions for thousands of clients worldwide. And, we don’t stop there. We measure the impact of our work and hold ourselves accountable to always do better.
We purchase products that are local, seasonal and responsibly raised and grown.
Each year, we serve more than two billion meals to customers around the world, accommodating many differences in tastes and diet. We prepare and serve food to kindergartners and college students, doctors and hospital patients, and even workers living on off-shore oil rigs.
Whether we’re students studying for tests, professionals preparing for a big presentation, or patients recovering from surgery—the food choices we make directly impact the energy and focus we need to reach our goals, throughout our lives.
That’s why, through our Healthy for Life® 20 By 20 partnership with the American Heart Association, our chefs and dietitians are creating health-inspired menus. We’re encouraging our customers (hyperlink), our employees and the families in our communities to make healthier choices.
We’re enriching and nourishing the lives of millions every day.
Our special features and consumer promotions highlight healthy foods and encourage healthy eating.
At Aramark, we live our mission to enrich and nourish lives in our communities around the world.
