This series concentrates on environmental sustainability. In this coaching series, we will cover areas in their operations that can be altered to improve the quality of the environment. Examples ranging from Costco and school districts utilizing value chain analysis provide examples of how a value chain analysis can support decreasing the environmental impact of a food service operation. Value chain analysis is similar to supply chain analysis but in that they work in reverse. Value chain analysis follows a product from the point of sale to all of the activities that are required to get it there. By conducting a value chain analysis on food items that are not consumed and placed in bins, food service operators have the opportunity to identify ways to reduce waste.
