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

Working with PRO*ACT has enabled Delaware North to streamline its large-scale produce supply chain, purchasing through PRO*ACT rather than directly from the farms. The new Greener Fields Together program will further enhance the company's ability to source products from local farms with a verified food safety record.  Delaware North will begin displaying the Greener Fields Together emblem in its U.S. operations as a commitment to customers that they are being served fresh, safe, sustainably sourced produce. "Becoming a hospitality partner in Greener Fields Together aligns with Delaware North's commitment to environmental sustainability through our award-winning GreenPath® environmental management system," adds Anne Marie McManus, director of environmental affairs and sustainability for Delaware North.

"We're proud to have Delaware North as the first major Greener Fields Together hospitality partner," says Max Yeater, PRO*ACT president. "We understand that they and others in the foodservice community are working hard to increase their use of fresh produce in general and of local produce in particular. We also know that moving toward a more sustainable produce supply chain – from farming through distribution through foodservice operations like those operated by Delaware North – is a shared strategic priority. Greener Fields Together is designed to help us get there, together."
