Good Food Media Network released its Good Food 100 Restaurants list. This annual list rates restaurants according to purchasing practices and commitment to sustainable sourcing, so consumers can make smarter decisions as to where they dine.
The list was put together with help from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The team found that, among the 125 participating restaurants aiming for a top spot on the list, spending totaled $120.1 million, with $80.1 million spent on “good food.” The team reports this translates to a $255 million economic impact on the national “good food” economy.
“Food is better when it’s fulfilling, not just filling,” said Sara Brito, co-founder and president, Good Food Media Network. “We know that to be truly good, food has to be good for every link of the food chain. The Good Food 100 Restaurants analysis demonstrates that there is a tangible economic benefit as well. A dollar spent on good food is more than tripled in terms of its economic impact. That’s a profound effect.
“Transparency in food sourcing is an increasingly important issue. By offering a snapshot of what happens behind kitchen doors and restaurants’ commitment to sustainable purchasing practices, the Good Food 100 holds chefs accountable and instills consumer confidence so eaters are empowered to make the best possible dining decisions.”
