Delaware North Joins PRO*ACT As First Hospitality Partner In New Greener Fields Together™ Sustainability Program

BUFFALO, N.Y. and MONTEREY, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Delaware North Companies, one of the nation's largest hospitality groups, has signed an agreement to become the first major hospitality and foodservice company to join Greener Fields Together, the sustainability program recently launched by leading national produce distributor, PRO*ACT.

The food industry's first comprehensive, national farm-to-fork sustainability program, Greener Fields Together is dedicated to continuous sustainability improvements at each touch point in the produce supply chain. This will ensure that Delaware North Companies and other hospitality operators have greater access to sustainably grown, safe produce at both the local and national levels.

PRO*ACT has served as Delaware North Companies' primary produce supplier since 2009, supplying more than 425,000 cases of fresh produce annually to most of the company's U.S. operating locations, including sports stadiums, entertainment complexes, airports, national and state parks, casinos and resorts.

"Delaware North and our clients are increasingly sourcing local produce to provide our guests with fresh, high-quality foods and seasonal cuisine," says Michael Reinert, vice president of Delaware North's Supply Management Services. "PRO*ACT's Greener Fields Together program makes our operations more sustainable and ensures we are receiving produce from farms and produce houses that are being held to the highest sustainability and safety standards."

Greener Fields Together encourages farmers to explore and develop "green" activities in areas such as energy use, water and waste management, pesticide/herbicide use, packaging and transportation. Farmers large and small partnering with PRO*ACT in the initiative are expected to make continuous, documented improvements in sustainability. PRO*ACT distributors have also pledged to make Greener Fields Together a strategic priority and are implementing a variety of improvements to their environmental impact while also building long-term partnerships with local farms, including financially supporting local farmers' food safety education and certification efforts.
