CSR/ESG Reporting

Reporting transparency today encompasses a wide range of measurements that include visible support of local farms and diverse businesses, as well as sustainable practices that support our climate and populations. Organizations have increasing pressure to report to multiple stakeholders. The complexity lies in balancing reporting deadlines with resourcing and budgetary constraints.


Responsible Procurement Strategic Planning

Developing meaningful insights and comparative baselines for procurement strategies requires standardization from hundreds of sources in a space that has no data standard. We’ve ingested and identified most of what the foodservice industry buys so that our clients can efficiently visualize and report on multi-member purchasing activity for spend and initiative management.

Sourcing Compliance

Existing reporting systems are traditionally built to measure supply chain efficiency, and therefore not structured to meet sustainable, local and diverse reporting demands. Our machine-learning and AI process assures that data is standardized to meet reporting requirements consistently, on-time and on-budget either through our existing templates or a custom built solution. 

Governmental and 3rd Party Initiatives

Federal, state, and 3rd party programs that fund local and sustainable initiatives have great potential to scale impact.  Whether it is managing invoicing for reimbursement programs, attracting funding for equitable food system programs or reporting procurement against UN SDG or other 3rd party frameworks, our reporting tools compliantly demonstrate  commitment to funded goals.
