Hide / Show Abstract

For many countries, tourism provides a significant source of foreign exchange and foreign direct investment. If managed sustainably, tourism can make an important contribution towards conserving natural and cultural heritage resources, generating and distributing wealth equitably, empowering the disadvantaged, generating jobs and supporting infrastructure development. This guidance document, entitled “Responsible Food Purchasing: Four Steps Towards Sustainability for the Hospitality Sector”, will help food purchasers to understand better the importance to their business of responsible food purchasing, while providing practical advice and guidance to enable them to make the right decisions and choices. This guidance outlines an approach to integrating food sustainability into your business, with practical steps, checklists and tips reinforced by case studies that provide valuable learning from those already embarked on responsible food purchasing. The resources listed at the end of the document will enable you to explore the wider sustainability agenda further, as responsible food purchasing remains a rapidly evolving field.
