Compass Group USA Faculty Internship: Charlotte, NC- Day Four

Day 4


Day four we visited Presbyterian Medical Center and the Duke Mansion.  The Presbyterian Medical Center foodservice is handled by Morrison and the Support Services by Crothall.  I was impressed with the high level of nutritious and tasty food offered to both patients and the retail guest. As well as the efficiency and high level of customer service offered by Crothall.

TRIM MAX PROGRAM
The Trim Trax program is designed to minimize food waste during the production process. Team members are asked to place all food trimmings into marked containers. Such trimmings include peels from cucumbers, apple cores, watermelon rinds and various other non-edible food waste, which often contain edible food trimmings that were mistakenly cut away. By collecting all waste and measuring the total, management can monitor how much edible food is being wasted. The program allows for continuous feedback and serves as a great educational tool for all involved.
