Taste of Excellence
The products that Taste of Excellence provides — food — come from the earth. By supporting and protecting the health and cleanliness of the earth, the organization can help to ensure safe products for the generations to come. Taste of Excellence’s philosophy is this: We need to work as individuals and be accountable for our own actions. We must instill these behaviors in our children. By doing this, individual efforts will be felt globally. The collaboration of our thoughts, ideas and resources is the key, but it must begin with each of us.
Taste of Excellence has gone green on many levels. At its retail outlets, the company uses Yuban Coffee, which is not grown under rainforest canapés, like most coffee beans. Therefore, there is no deforestation when growing the coffee beans. They use “harvest collection” serviceware, which is a corn-based product and completely biodegradable and compostable. When possible, they use real china or laminate, glassware and flatware to service guests.
A Taste of Excellence donates untouched leftovers to homeless shelters around the area — rather than wasting and throwing them out. In doing this, less food is needed to support these organizations’ demands. Reach Taste of Excellence at (440) 845-0800 or visit www.taste-food.com.
