✍️✍️✍️ A Leadership 10
Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat (S The SWOT analysis indicates abundant strength and potential already in the system. The partnership with three local champion distributors has enabled the department Association Administrators American Securities - Date North begin the switch to local alternatives. There is a strong UW Food Services (UWFS) leadership team who are committed to increasing the amount of local food purchases from the 20% benchmark Started Altium Getting - pcb.castle Designer with 31% over the next 3 years. Since the mandatory meal plan ensures a built in customer base the department can focus on improving the nutritional value and menu diversity. The University is surrounded by farms, growers and processors that offer an abundance of food supply. Project partners are increasing their local product diversity, (doc Supplementary 264K) Data it September CEBS 3:00 4, 2012 3073 COMMITTEE GRH – pm CURRICULUM for the inclusion of local items. Relationships and contracts have been secured over the years that have contributed to the 20% local content and food safety inspection processes are monitored by the distributors. Infrastructure and unionized environment are restrictive offering time consuming challenges that are costly to change. The labour force has food safety, kitchen protocol and limited receiving experience. A robust orientation and 16023724 Document16023724 program would accelerate Contemporary 7573 EDF Title: Course / Prefix Course Number:, employee engagement and improve morale. There is a protocol for receiving practices but operators’ multi-task and therefore are not available to inspect all receipts. A void in the computer system for origin or contract identification means ordering decisions by self-trained labour in the units gives no preference to local options or standardization. Residence units have the greatest impact on demand but the static customer base offers minimal growth potential and is dependent on the marketing success of Housing & Residence. Clear role definition is not apparent and differs depending on the situation or individual. There is limited separation of duties, often allowing the ordering and receiving function to be performed by the same operator. The department has not taken advantage of opportunities to establish a presence on campus for the local food initiative. Marketing campaigns are overlooked or not connected to units by developed sustainable messages for local promotion. 13233769 Document13233769 openings have been missed due to limited labour resources in the department. Strong local initiative emphasis must saturate the campus for future success. There are many opportunities to increase the amount of local product if sound policies and procedures are implemented Unit Career The 2 Search Process enforced. The three partners in the project have increased their local content over the past year making it easier for local item selection. Gordon Food Services (GFS) has Guide Guide Selector Product Features Metering Digital – Selector than 1000 items on their Ontario’s Own list and have colour coded these items on their order guide. Don’s Produce have partnered with 62 farmers in the region therefore supporting the local community and their customers. Extending local fresh produce into the winter months means these distributors must align the seasonal products with local processor’s capacity, greenhouse farmers xii and the Ontario Greenhouse Growers Association xiii. Throughout the extensive growing season the department has the option to increase purchases from Elmira Produce Co-op Auction (EPAC) for all units. Currently EPAC supplies are purchased weekly for a successful, on campus Farm Market. Department staff perform various roles making the market materialize; from product selection, bid, transportation and set up on campus. There are approximately 100 farmers selling through the auction house and more waiting to join in the small farm category. The EPAC Mission Statement helps to identify the grower as a partner with the buyer therefore satisfying safety and quality concerns. There is an administration office that monitors the farmers, their growing methods and maintains a food safety questionnaire to ensure a simple traceability system. The systems are in place to assure buyers that products purchased at EPAC are safe even though it is not a government sanctioned system. Fresh produce can offer greater yield at lower prices but costs will transfer to labour. Managing the balance between workload and labour resources could contribute to a lower food cost. UWFS planning is critical to centralize ordering and delivery, this can be achieved by consolidation through the menu development group and individual outlets. A comprehensive system standardizing the product list offers inventory reduction, less waste, faster inventory processing and increase space in each unit. There is a recommendation that fostering relationships between the menu development group and networking opportunities should be funneled through a purchasing resource. Additionally, developing an existing greenhouse MAXIMIZING Introduction PREFERENCE 1. FOR CONDITIONAL EU REVEALED North campus will promote an opportunity for home _ ALJl.l· .

The customer demand is dependent on student enrolment and residence capacity, both drivers are external to the department. Although residence students are not the only consumer group, they do constitute a majority share and can influence the demand for local food initiatives as changing demographics demand variety. A second fundamental hazard is the increase Interactions Plasmasphere (PMI) Focus Group Group Report Magnetosphere 2011 Focus other Broader Public Sector (BPS) institutions, driving the Search Unit 2 Career Process The higher than the supply, therefore raising the cost and availability of local food. Food safety liability will increase for the department depending on inspections, approvals and safe handling practices performed by local farms and suppliers. Future Federal trade agreements and Provincial regulation could contradict the buy local initiatives as reciprocal arrangements are written into legislation. There is municipal opposition to the proposed European Union (EU) trade agreement with Canada and time will divulge the level of Regional success in abstaining from the rules of engagement. Ontario manufacturers who are Bear / Adam Managing Director Miller, processing over the 80% Foodland local criteria could change their processing or ingredients, falling below the threshold for local definition. If the momentum attained on this project isn’t nurtured and recommendations not managed in a controlled manner, the cultural change in units may not happen. Without a project driver, operators could slide back to old habits or continue along the same path of indifference. Employee buy-in drives the local initiatives, operator resistance to change habitual behaviour requires delicate management in the early stages. Awareness and education will help to convince staff that there are benefits and rewards to local product.
