Circle of Responsibility

Know What You Are Eating

Bon Appétit Management Company is committed to offering you dietary choices that fit your goals and values. Our Circle of Responsibility program is designed to give you information about our kitchen principles and how they affect your environment, community and well being.

Components of the program include:

  • An informational Circle of Responsibility board in each of our cafés
  • Menu icons defining food choices that are local, low fat, organic, vegetarian, vegan, etc.
  • Educational signage throughout the cafés

To ensure the trustworthiness of the program, key chefs and managers at each location must complete extensive training and pass a certification exam before they can implement Circle of Responsibility.

With Circle of Responsibility, you can truly know what you are eating.

Know Your Food Choices

Look for icons throughout the café to find responsible food choices:
