"CANADA IS FACING A MORAL AWAKENING IN HOW SOCIAL JUSTICE IS ACHIEVED... UNLIKE PAST SOCIAL ISSUES, CONSUMERS ARE DEMANDING THAT THE FOOD SERVICE INDUSTRY SPEAKS UP."
- Patrick Noone, Executive Vice-President, Technomic
The Canadian foodservice industry is facing an unprecedented labour shortage with employees involved in front of house, back of house, and the supply chain quitting at record rates.
The greatest opportunity for addressing these shortages is understanding the racial biases and structural inequalities that prevent multicultural Canadians from joining and thriving within the foodservice industry.
Businesses who are equipped to attract, retain, and promote underrepresented groups will lead the industry and get the highest ROI on their marketing dollars.
Taking an anti-racist approach to organizational policies will support your organization's bottom line and build better relationships with the communities you serve.
