FoodMaven Announces New Sustainability Initiative with Local Hospitality Partners

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 marzo 2019

FoodMaven, a Colorado-based startup, announced today an initiative aimed at helping hospitality institutions source local, sustainable food products for their kitchens in Colorado and Texas. The initiative is already in place at Hilton properties in Denver including DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel-Westminster, Hilton Denver City Center, and Hilton Stapleton North. “As part of Hilton’s Travel with Purpose commitment to cut our environmental footprint in half by 2030 and double our social impact investment around the world, we are identifying solutions to reduce food waste and expand sustainable sourcing,” said Terry Jenkins, Sr. Manager of Corporate Responsibility Americas, Hilton. “Our hotels are finding innovative local partners to help achieve these goals and make an even greater positive impact.”
Sourcing local food items can be challenging for already-established hotel chains, who often need to reach out to multiple suppliers for specific food products. FoodMaven retains valuable relationships with local suppliers to navigate the logistics and provide buyers with an online marketplace that allows them to see product in FoodMaven inventory. FoodMaven fully integrates their technology into the hotel’s existing purchasing platform, creating a seamless buying experience.
FoodMaven handles the process from safety guidelines and insurance procedures to securing onsite delivery at hotels and restaurants – which most local suppliers cannot provide – and also leads local businesses towards more sustainable sourcing practices.The move towards a locally sourced model helps larger institutions meet rising consumer demand for more sustainable and fresher food options. Additionally, sourcing local is more cost-effective and can help invigorate a more local economy by tapping local suppliers that face challenges getting their product to a larger market.FoodMaven currently serves hospitality institutions in Colorado with plans to expand nationwide.
