Agricultural and Environmental Sustainability

A secure, healthy and productive food chain ensures that our products are of the highest quality and meet our customers' needs. We aim to protect and preserve our shared resources and support our suppliers.

This includes supporting causes that protect the environment, foster responsible agricultural development, encourage the consumption of locally grown produce and promote cooperative farming.

Preparation: the Best Protection Against Hurricane Dangers

Building Consumer Trust

Given consumers' appetite for facts about their food and the abundance of information available online and in the media, Sysco believes accuracy is paramount. We belong to the Center for Food Integrity, a non-profit organization established in 2007 to build consumer trust and confidence in today's food system, with members representing every segment of the food chain. Through its website, the center disseminates timely, relevant and research-proven information about food from academic experts. The site's blog, videos and other tools engage consumers, the media and food bloggers with accurate facts, in language that's easy to comprehend.
