GRAS got started in 2011 (before Sacramento was the "Farm-to-Fork Capital") with the mission to help Sacramento restaurants become more sustainable.
We sought to build up a compost infrastructure for restaurants and partnered with local franchise hauler, Atlas Disposal. GRAS became the intermediary between waste hauler and the restaurant and the farm (and then Clean World's Anaerobic Digester). We approached restaurateurs, trained staff, organized bins, created signage, and sought to develop best practices with Sacramento restaurants and the waste industry.
Our mission is to help restaurants develop the sustainable practices. We can help to streamline your recycling and waste stream, and put you in sync with the best local possibilities.
