The critical role of sustainability for Foodservice success in the 2020s

Consumers have radically re-thought their priorities in recent years and changed their habits for the good of the planet, starting to hold companies accountable for their ESG activities. These changes are set to be significant hallmarks of the Consumer Landscape in the 2020s. In order to appease consumers’ new concerns, meeting these new sustainability imperatives will be crucial for the recovery of the Foodservice industry. Consumers are expected to use ESG criteria much more actively in their selection of Foodservice brands to engage with. Download GlobalData’s free report to:

Situated at 1240 Lindsay Blvd, the Idaho Falls store will be the company’s 69th location in the Western US.

The 20,265ft2 store will offer a range of products to meet the requirements of local foodservice businesses.

It will carry over 8,000 items such as fresh meat and produce, cheese, dairy and deli products, frozen seafood, appetisers, french fries, grocery products, baking ingredients, beverages, bread and tortillas, janitorial and catering supplies, tableware and barware.

Smart Foodservice vice president of sales and marketing John Mathews said: “Our stores provide foodservice operators access to high-quality ingredients, without having to worry about inflated delivery prices and fees.

“We offer an assortment that includes major national brands as well as excellent private label products through our First Street-branded items. We are excited to serve new and existing customers in the greater Idaho Falls and Pocatello areas.”

Headquartered in the Greater Portland, Oregon area, Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores has been operating throughout the Northwest for over 60 years.

The company operates 69 warehouse stores in Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Montana.

Earlier this year, Shipt started same-day delivery with Smart Foodservice Warehouse Stores across 15 markets in the Western and Northwestern regions of the US.

As per the partnership, the companies are making ingredients and restaurant supplies to be available in as soon as one hour to households and foodservice providers like caterers, restaurateurs and other small businesses.
