Canteen’s Earth Day blog: Delivering better breaks for the environment

April 22, 2021

Compass Group USA’s vending and coffee service division posted a blog article that answers questions about how the operation minimizes food waste using technology and micro markets.

Canteen pointed out that 33% of all food produced globally is lost or wasted every year.

“With a shocking statistic like that and our reach across the country, we are committed to not only delivering breaks that are better for you but better for the environment,” Canteen posted.

Canteen director of consumer experience Jeremy Cauble explains how the vending operation's technology can help reduce food waste from its warehouses to Avenue C micro markets.
