You’re invited to attend the University of Guelph Sustainable Restaurant Project’s 10th annual symposium. This year’s theme is “confronting foodservice industry challenges through research and advocacy”.
The symposium will feature presentations by Emily Robinson and Rebecca Gordon of the University of Guelph and Kyla Tuori, the Corporate Chef of Unilever and the Fair Kitchens Ambassador.
Emily Robinson and Rebecca Gordon have spent the last two years conducting groundbreaking research on restaurant sustainability issues while completing their MSc. degrees and they look forward to sharing their findings with you. Emily Robinson will speak about how to overcome barriers to implement environmental sustainability initiatives. Rebecca Gordon will give a presentation on how the food service industry can eliminate extreme work conditions to retain restaurant workers. We are also excited to have Kyla Tuori joining us to share how Fair Kitchens is creating change in the industry through advocacy and education of fair employment practices. Fair Kitchens provides free tools, support and training for foodservice and hospitality professionals to help build positive working environments.
