The article presents the result of the FoodService Director's 2007 Catering Study, which concluded that environmental concerns remain secondary for most caterers in the U.S. Although anecdotal evidence suggests that most food service departments engage in recycling efforts with regard to catering, most operators have yet to make the switch to biodegradable or compostable service ware, the study revealed. Only 33% of operators surveyed say they offer customers the option of using such service ware.
