Sustainable Practices for Food Service Professionals


Join a global community of hospitality students studying online


Will be mentored by a highly qualified Instructor


Won’t need to take time off work/ school to attend classes



Hotels and food service establishments do not operate in isolation; they are part of a global economic, social and environmental ecosystem. Food service sources products from suppliers; the land, and the sea and processes these into beautiful dishes that are served to our customers. This processing of food has many impacts on this delicate ecosystem. Businesses (and individuals) need to be concerned with transforming the way they work to protecting the planet and its people for future generations,

This program introduces learners to global sustainability concepts, issues and concerns providing a context for sustainability. Through the course the learner will gain a good understanding of food production methods and the impact of food service has on the environment. We discuss the challenges that food service faces in implementing sustainable choices and actions that they are taking to become more sustainable.
