Kaiser Permanente created the industryâ€™s first Sustainable Food Scorecard, which allows the organization to rate suppliers and vendors and select the vendors who can best support the organizationâ€™s sustainable food purchasing initiatives.Â
Great job, Kathleen Reed and team, in working to create a healthier food system for all.
â€œKaiser Permanente spends approximately $52 million on food each year,â€ explains Reed. â€œSo we want to use our purchasing power to begin shifting the supply chain towards more sustainable food options. And the Sustainable Food Scorecard is critical to that process.â€
