Does your foodservice operation make an environmental impact? With the growing sustainability trend, the healthcare foodservice industry is striving to reduce the current 23% post-consumer and packaging waste by substituting disposable items with reusable alternatives. In response, manufacturers are reacting to the sustainability trend with innovative solutions to support the green initiatives of stake holders. When Cambro launched its Non-skid Versa Camtray, the idea was to eliminate the use of disposable healthcare paper tray mats for each meal service to consequently reduce environmental waste, improve patient and staff safety.
After converting to these trays, healthcare foodservice operators experienced firsthand the benefits that came along with this change. Often, what was initially perceived as a minor operation adjustment escalated to major environmental and financial gain while positively influencing the cultural acceptance towards sustainability.
Since the introduction of the Non-skid Camtray, the healthcare industry has made a noteworthy difference by collectively eliminating the waste of over 200 million disposable tray mats each year — an impressive 5,000+ tons!
