On this episode of Worldchefs’s “green” webcast series, chef Chris Koetke looks into the world of culinary sustainability from a different perspective – suppliers’. Together with chef Mark Serice, Vice President of Global Culinary for Griffith Foods, we aim to understand the key to sustainable food sourcing and supply chain, as well as how chefs can use their power to shift their purveyors and diners toward ethical and ecological practices.
As the Vice President of Global Culinary for Griffith Foods, chef Mark Serice seeks to elevate culinary for the entire organization, while complementing the business development activities of the company’s regional and local chefs.
