No. 5: Social responsibility
Since food production and consumption are closely linked to every dimension of sustainability, corporate social responsibility is especially important within the restaurant industry. Consumers and watchdog groups are looking more closely at how foodservice operators conduct business.
So, it’s vital for restaurants to operate responsibly,adopt sustainable practices and embrace transparency. As the public microscope continues to focus on issues suchas farm worker’s rights and food safety, the restaurant industry continues to help ease consumer concern by incorporating social responsibility into every business decision.
