Compass Group North America is the newest hospitality partner in the Greener Fields Together sustainability and local produce initiative created by the PRO*ACT produce supply-chain management company. Greener Fields Together is a comprehensive national farm-to-fork sustainability program designed to create continuous sustainability improvements at each touch point in the produce supply chain.

Through its membership, Compass Group and its produce procurement partner Foodbuy will receive greater access to high-quality, safe produce grown at both the national and local levels.

"Greener Fields Together allows us to grow our commitment to sustainably produced food by supporting farmer partners who are willing to put in place those best ecological practices important to the health of our planet," says Marc Zammit, vice president of sustainability initiatives at Compass. "Just as important, this means that our guests can enjoy a larger variety of healthy foods and feel good about what they are eating in our cafes. Becoming a hospitality partner in Greener Fields Together aligns with Compass Group North America's existing, industry leading sustainability initiatives."
