As a family-owned company, Encore Catering is sensitive to the impact that sustainability has on humanity. Encore makes ethical choices to reduce our carbon footprint and promote sustainability to ensure the well-being of future generations. Whether it’s our waste-reduction efforts, sourcing local quality ingredients, or using environmentally friendly products, Encore takes meaningful steps to actively reduce its impact on the environment.
Reduce (Waste Avoidance): Materials are ordered in bulk to reduce packaging as well as carbon emissions and we favor local suppliers who use sustainable practices. We provide water coolers on our premises to encourage reusable cups for drinking water. We also utilize a fleet management system to track our deliveries and develop routes that minimize mileage, while optimizing the capacity of our vehicles.
Recycle: Recycling Blue Bins are used for the disposal of appropriate materials to minimize environmental impact. All fryer oil is recycled after usage. We only use recyclable or compostable cater ware and have recently transitioned our recyclable cater ware into biodegradable disposables. We utilize renewable bamboo serving vessels and promote the use of refurbished products.
Education: Staff are continuously trained in ways to prevent food waste, including proper food rotation, food preparation techniques, and ongoing education regarding waste management best practices. Food waste is recorded and documented allowing progress tracking to minimize wastage.
Technology: Encore Catering uses modern purchasing software to prevent over purchasing, which can lead to excessive food waste. Our office and kitchen staff use iPad computers when possible, connected to cloud-based technology, to limit the use of paper.
