Sysco partners with Nutritics for sustainability labelling system

Brakes parent company Sysco has partnered with foodservice tech company Nutritics to introduce its Foodprint carbon labelling solution for the wholesaler’s customers.

Foodprint is a fully automated environmental impact scoring system that allows customers to track, manage and publish the water and carbon impact of their menus and will become part of Brakes’ Virtual Chef concept.

The software works by taking the most reliable data available across agriculture, processing, packaging and transportation, linked back to peer reviewed academic research. It delivers this in a format that can be translated into a consumer-friendly label.

Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive of Sysco GB, said: “Over 90% of our carbon footprint is the food that we sell, so educating our team and supporting customers on the design and development of menus and the products they are sourcing is vital to us playing our part in tackling climate change.

“With thousands of customers and the industry’s largest development chef team, we are very excited about the opportunity to build on Sysco’s global science-based targets and be at the forefront of transforming the food system and what ends up on the menus of tomorrow.”

Stephen Nolan, chief executive of Nutritics said: “Fresh from helping the organisers of COP28 deliver climate-friendly menus across the conference, this is another opportunity for us to provide food sustainability experience that helps hospitality businesses. We’re proud to work alongside Sysco GB, creating a path towards shared goals and becoming part of its sustainability journey. By becoming part of Brakes’ Virtual Chef concept, we’re able to support the company in its broader mission to reduce emissions and educate customers on the impact of culinary decisions on the environment, creating a greener future.”
