Concordia, ITHQ, ULaval create new sustainability tool for food services 


Concordia University, the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec (ITHQ), and Université Laval have created a new web-based tool called Tracéco, which will help food services stakeholders switch to local providers. The software improves institutional sustainability efforts, makes it easier for institutions to manage and track food purchases, and features a database that contains thousands of food products.  “A number of our institutions have already adopted a sustainable food plan,” explained Concordia Senior Director of Budget Planning and Business Development Sabrina Lavoie. “With this new tool, we’ll be able to reach our local procurement targets more easily, and even exceed them.” Future updates will include more robust functionality added to the tool.
