Compass Flexitarian Program

The world’s largest food service company encourages reducing meat consumption.

Yesterday, Compass Group, the world's largest food service company, announced it would immediately implement a new flexitarian food initiative that aims to reduce meat consumption in standard American diets. Currently, Compass Group provides food service programs for 8,500 companies and schools across the country. The Humane Society of the United States helped the company develop its "Be A Flexitarian" program, which will incorporate more plant-based and faux-meat options and encourage consumers to eat more consciously. Meat-free food items under Compass Group's new menu include veggie burgers, burritos, pastas, and stir-fry meals.
