Healthy Food Expo, a series of trade shows featuring purveyors of healthy, natural, and organic products takes place August 19-21 in Los Angeles at the Los Angeles Convention Center. This year the Expo has announced that the Green Restaurant Association has signed as a participating organization.
The Green Restaurant Association is a non-profit. It focuses on restaurants, distributors and manufacturers, and provides a certification program for participating companies. With its turnkey certiﬁcation system, the GRA has made it accessible for thousands of restaurants to become more environmentally sustainable in energy, water, waste, food, chemicals, and disposables.
The collaboration is a milestone for an organization that as been the driving force over the past 28 years in making sustainable practices part of restaurant industry practices. Their mission is to continue to spread awareness about green standards in the food industry with their Green Products Guide of green tips, product listings, eco-terms and facts.The Green Restaurant Association also brings a commitment to teaching restaurants how to become more environmentally sustainable and provide more locally grown foods to their customers.
At these trade shows, the Green Restaurant Association first does an analysis of the hundreds of vendors to produce a Green Products Guide which makes it easy for attendees to know which booths have green products.
