Keeping Food Safe Every Step of the Way
At Performance Foodservice, we understand our responsibility for food safety, and we do everything in our power to emphasize the importance of responsible food handling to all associates and customers. We believe that good food safety practices must be in place at every point along the supply chain, and that these practices must function together as a unified and continuous system so the health and well-being of the public is protected. We must have safe and sustainable food in order to feed a growing world of customers, and we are willing to guarantee our commitment to food safety to all of our customers in writing with our Letter of Guarantee.
Our Commitment to Sourcing
Performance Foodservice is committed to responsibly sourcing products for our customers. This is why we encourage suppliers to implement humane procedures to prevent the mistreatment of animals at all times, including when they are raised, cared for, transported, and processed. We also strive to partner with companies that have a proven track record of sustainable practices.
Beef and Pork
Through our PathProven process, we have led the way when it comes to raising cattle for our Braveheart beef brand. Our industry leading techniques not only benefit the animal, but also the rancher and ultimately the consumer.
Through our five areas of focus, we strive to help move towards a more sustainable fish industry that will ensure we are able to provide our customers with a wide variety of fresh and delicious seafood today and for years to come.
Our goal is to increase sourcing of cage-free eggs throughout the entire supply chain in the U.S.. Predicated on available supply, affordability and customer demand, we look to shift toward 100% cage free eggs by 2026.
Many of our distribution centers throughout the U.S. already offer customers cage-free shell, liquid and processed eggs and we plan to launch a new branded line of cage-free pasteurized liquid eggs and cage-free shell eggs later this year in 2017.
With an eye towards sustainable practices, we created GreenBasis to help our customers identify which disposable items align with industry best practices. Whether it is free of toxic materials, recyclable, or biodegradable, learn more about what it means to be designated GreenBasis.
