OUR CHOICE FOR SUSTAINABILITY

Wherever possible, the Culinary Tourism Alliance, the management team of the Terroir Symposium has incorporated
green meeting planning standards that reduce waste and used recycled materials.

Our efforts include: 

sourcing local, seasonal and fresh food and drinks from Ontario

eliminating the use of plastic bottles and use glass bottles and water jars instead 

using reusable plates, cups, napkins, and tableware

composting 

sourcing conference bags in cotton 

not printing a program - using the app Whova 

requested program partners to reduce print materials for distribution and send out content in the Whova app

collecting badges and lanyards at the end of the conference
