Being Green in 2019

Being Green in 2019


Utah Food Services mission is to consistently create positive and relevant experiences and sustainable business practices is no exception to that rule. According to the USDA, food waste in the United States is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply which corresponds to approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of waste annually. 


Utah Food Services Facilities Director, Doug Curry, has been integrating sustainability into our operations since he was hired in 1994. When asked about why Utah Food Services has been so invested in sustainable practices, Curry noted, “from day one, our owner has encouraged me to simply ‘do the right thing.’ and that’s honestly what I have been striving for.” Actively working toward upholding the overarching mission of the company has provided a framework for building relationships in our community rooted in “doing the right thing.”


Fast-forward 25 years, and Utah Food Services has found themselves being mentioned in an article published on wherein Salt Lake City is listed as one of four cities making it easy to go green in 2019. Utah Food Services efforts were mentioned specifically by Chance Thompson stating, “Since 2017, UFS donated over 75,000 meals from food leftover at trade shows. Thompson explained that UFS has always put sustainability at the forefront of its food practices—it was one of the company’s core values during its creation.”

Our team is excited to be involved with the Green Team Committee alongside The Salt Palace Convention Center, Mountain America Expo Center, Visit Salt Lake, and PSAV. Our team is very proud of Doug Curry for spearheading these efforts and for being such an asset to our team. Thanks Doug!
