(PRWEB) February 16, 2010 -- Georgia-based all natural food service company manages to grow sales and reduce its impact on the environment. While renewing their Carbon Neutral status for the second year in a row, Service Foods, the largest Home Food service company in America, discovered they had reduced their annual carbon footprint even after increasing sales. Verus Carbon Neutral once again measured and offset 100% of Service Foods’ scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions, plus greenhouse gases generated from waste, business travel and employee commutes.

“It’s ideal when clients are able to reduce their carbon footprints, but to do so, and grow your business significantly, is a real achievement,” commented Eric Taub, Founder of Verus Carbon Neutral.

Service Foods CEO, Keith Kantor, who recently earned his Masters in Nutritional Science, has created a very sustainable business model. Not only did Service Foods have considerable sales growth, but it also hired new employees and added services that cater to customers’ medical, nutritional and fitness needs. It’s no coincidence that Service Foods was also included on the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “Best Places to Work”, listed on the Inc. 5000 list two years in a row and made the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s list of 50 fastest growing companies in Atlanta.

“Our experience shows that if you take care of your customers, take care of your employees and take care of the environment, success will follow,” says Keith Kantor, CEO of Service Foods.

According to Verus Carbon Neutral, Service Foods’ environmental initiatives include: shredding and recycling of all menus and other paperwork, renderings (bone, fat, etc.) are sent from production facilities to be recycled, utilization of energy-saving fluorescent lights, use of steam or all-natural-biodegradable products when cleaning production facilities and offices, use of a proprietary blend of biodiesel for their truck fleet, use reusable totes instead of cardboard for delivery, certain food is packaged in Bio-degradable Iolon film and when they have to ship out of state, they offer a pre-paid Styrofoam recycling program for customers.
