US FOODSERVICE RUNS GEORGIA FLEET ON BIODIESEL FUEL


Wow, another big move in industry synergy happened recently when US Foodservice-Atlanta converted its entire delivery fleet to biodiesel.

All of the Atlanta division's 185 tractors and 210 trailers began using biodiesel fuel recently, following the path of two other US Foodservice divisions in Streator, IL and Plymouth, MN.

How exciting to see the purveyors jumping on board with renewable energy. This train is pushing on through! Who's next?




MORE MEDIA: DRIVE FOR 'ZERO WASTE ZONES'

Steve Simon, Partner Fifth Group Restaurants, and Holly Elmore, GFA Founder & Executive Director, were featured in an Atlanta Journal & Constitution article, Drive for ‘zero waste zones’ by Meridith Ford Goldman.

The article discusses the synergy that is pushing the zero waste initiative; collaboration between the foodservice industry, the private sector and the non-profit sector . What a beautiful thing! It's so nice to see a plan coming together.
