It is the combination of transparency for our guests and Chipotle’s commitment to higher standards that make Real Foodprint so impactful."

Tell your sustainability story with cross-functional sustainability software for restaurants and food service

An increasing number of restaurants and dining halls are communicating their impact in annual ESG reports and public communications. But, it’s not easy to tie your sustainability initiatives to measurable data.

Demonstrate your progress toward carbon and water reduction goals with quantitative data, for use throughout your recipe development process and ready for customer communications.
Today’s consumers are seeking meal options that align with their values. Showcase your commitment to sustainability with the most easy-to-understand data possible, highlighting exactly what differentiates your recipes.

Tailoring your communications to the issues that will resonate with your audience – whether it’s carbon footprint, water impact, or a comprehensive sustainability score – will make it clear where your values lie.
Impact reduction starts with the recipe development process. But if you’re measuring impact at the enterprise level, it is difficult to pinpoint your most carbon- and water-intensive ingredients.

Identify your biggest areas of opportunity, discover new sustainable suppliers, and bring sustainability to the forefront of your innovation process with a comprehensive tool for food design teams.
