At The BBQ Gourmet, we strive to provide our clients food options that include local sourcing of protein, produce, co ingredient and packaging options. Working closely with our key suppliers, we actively promote sources in a 160km radius of Toronto, with a special focus on family farm operations.
On site, we work with our clients to provide limited waste events through recycling and food handling practices. At the start of 2020 we made the decision to only use biodegradable plates and cutlery (ASTM D6868). These eco friendly products are made from plant starch and break down faster than plastic disposables. Upon request, we will calculate the carbon footprint generated by the event and purchase Gold Standard offsets to render the event carbon neutral. These offsets go toward projects for renewable energy, energy efficiency, reforestation, and reducing green house gases.
In addition, we will create custom menus that fulfill LEED requirements for our clients.
At The BBQ Gourmet, we are committed to providing our clients with the latest options for products, services and environmental stewardship. We look at all aspects of our operation to investigate and implement improvements in an ever changing world.
