Compass Group partners with Do Good Foods to reduce food waste

Oct. 5, 2022
Compass Group North America brings Do Good Chicken brand to corporate cafés, healthcare systems and event venues.

Compass Group announced that it is now the first national foodservice company to partner with Do Good Foods, a climate-forward food company that is on a mission to end food waste and combat climate change with Do Good Chicken, the first U.S. chicken brand with USDA verified carbon-reduced benefits. 

By creating a closed-loop system where surplus healthy food from grocery stores – after food bank donations – is upcycled into nutritious feed for chickens, Do Good Chicken is making strides to fight food waste and combat climate change. Each Do Good Chicken stops approximately 4 pounds of surplus groceries from being thrown away, reducing nearly 3 pounds of greenhouse gases (CO2e).

“Do Good Foods shows what’s possible when you creatively look at opportunities to make change that benefits people and the planet,” Amy Keister, global director of sustainability, Compass Group, said in the announcement. “Introducing Do Good Chicken in our cafes and dining venues not only reinforces our own sustainability commitments and Net Zero goals, but it is another way that we’re supporting our clients’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint – all while helping our guests make a difference by simply enjoying a delicious meal.” 

Do Good Chicken will begin appearing on café menus at Condé Nast and Google, as well as other café and event venues Compass Group operates. Through the Compass Group partnership, Do Good Chicken was also served at select hospitality venues at the US Open Tennis Championships. 

The partnership with Do Good Foods reinforces Compass Group’s net zero commitment and efforts to work with clients and suppliers to halve food waste across the company’s global operations by 2030. It further builds on Compass Group’s food waste awareness leadership and sustainability journey that includes building partnerships with purpose and aligning with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals.   

“The problem of food waste is hard to overstate, and I know there are things we can do as a community of chefs to make real change,” Sam Kass, chief strategy officer, Do Good Foods, and former White House Chef and Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition, added in the announcement. “From previous work with Stop Food Waste Day, I know that Compass Group is committed to finding and implementing meaningful solutions. This partnership is another way we can empower chefs to use food to promote a healthier planet.”
