Bon Apptit Management Company

On Monday 8 August 2005 the Ecological Society of America, at its 90th Annual Meeting in Montral, will present its Corporate Award to Bon Apptit Management Company (BAMCO). The Corporate Award honors a company that incorporates sound ecological concepts, knowledge, and practices into planning and operating procedures.

"ESA commends Bon Apptit for its work leading to this award," said Dr. Kate Lathja, ESA member and Chair of the Corporate Award Subcommittee. "The company has incorporated many programs aimed at incorporating socially and environmentally responsible practices."

Bon Apptit is being recognized for its "Circle of Responsibility" program. Under this program, Bon Apptit has instituted a variety of environmentally responsible and sustainable practices. The "Circle of Responsibility" includes: Farm to Fork, a program to purchase ingredients from local farms or artisans; organic food options with at least 95 percent organically produced ingredients; options for fair trade, shade grown and organic coffees; operating as a beta-test site for biodegradable disposables made from renewable sources; recycling wherever possible; and whenever possible following Seafood Watch, a set of guidelines for purchasing sustainable seafood choices.

Also part of the "Circle of Responsibility," in December 2003 Bon Apptit announced a new purchasing policy for meat. Many meats contain non-therapeutic antibiotics, which are antibiotics provided through feed or water for promoting growth, weight gain, or other non-illness related treatments. In contrast, Bon Apptit encourages meat suppliers to administer antibiotics only when the animals were clearly in need of medication

The Bon Apptit programs promote the health of people and the environment. Simultaneously, Bon Apptit is raising awareness of its sustainable practices through joint programs with Environmental Defense, the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch, and other organizations.
