With Chris Moyer of the NRA Conserve Program teaming with Kendall College, the International Foodservice Symposium is an excellent opportunity for the seasoned foodservice operator to take their sustainable practices to the next dimension. IFSS is held on May 24 & 25 in Chicago immediately following the NRA 2011 Show.

Take the "gray out of green" by attending the first-ever International Foodservice Sustainability Symposium (IFSS). Hear from some of the world´s leading experts as they tackle today´s most complex issues in sustainability. You´ll learn about emerging technologies, alternative energy, green building and perhaps the most highly nuanced subject of all – FOOD!
Speaking of food, what is the definition of sustainable food? Is it local? Is it organic? Is it biodynamic? Could it even be conventional agriculture? Hear from pioneers in sustainable agriculture as the issues are debated by some of the world´s leading minds in the field.
At IFSS, you can expect new insights. You can expect passionate discussion. You can expect spirited debate. You can expect to leave knowing far more about these issues than when you arrived and with lots of food for thought. What you CAN’T expect is another mundane conference.
The IFSS, supported two of the most credible voices in sustainability, co-founding sponsors Kendall College and the National Restaurant Association, will be an event that will drive discussion and sustainability progress for a long time to come.
