Food Waste Reduction Pledge

Orlando Hospitality Alliance (OHA) is excited to announce its Food Waste Reduction Pledge. This pledge is an important component of OHA’s new multi-year commitment to advancing sustainability initiatives within its membership, which includes over 100 small local and social businesses in Orlando.

 

Orlando and its surrounding entertainment districts include some of the most innovative hospitality entrepreneurs in the world. Equipping them with the tools, training, and resources to achieve their sustainability goals is an important part of OHA’s mission. OHA is targeting 50 member locations to commit to this pledge in 2022, with the goal of reducing food waste in Central Florida by more than 100,000 pounds a year.

  3. Complete OHA's sustainability in supply chain training.
