Foodprint Customer Testimonials

Don’t just take it from us

With Foodprint, we’ve helped businesses globally to monitor and report on their carbon footprint.

“The system enables report generation on carbon emissions resulting from food service, aiding in tracking progress towards long-term carbon reduction targets. Moving forward, we’ll be able to pull reports on the amount of carbon generated as a result of the food that we serve in total as Aramark or for specific clients.”

Michael Savage Director of Sustainability at Aramark

“We can actually understand where our hotspots are, so we can focus on buying less of a product or a more sustainable, low-carbon product. And we can then encourage our chefs and managers to make better choices in terms of structuring their menus.”

Mike Hanson Director of Sustainable Business at WSH
