We serve REAL food

Genuine Foods is a Eat REAL® certified food service company. REAL stands for Responsible Epicurean and Agricultural Leadership. It is a trusted, nationally-recognized mark of excellence for food and foodservice operators committed to holistic nutrition and environmental stewardship.


Modeled after the LEED Green Building Certification, REAL Certified is implemented with the assistance of independent, third party registered dietitians (RDs). The comprehensive review process includes menu analysis, invoice and supply chain verification, interviews, and visual assessments of front and back of house operations.

Genuine Foods has also joined a small group of progressive companies in working with the ASPCA®. By 2021, Genuine Foods will procure 100% of our beef, chicken, eggs, and pork from ranches and farms that achieve an animal welfare certification recognized by REAL Certified and ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart. 

By 2024, 100% of our chicken will be sourced from farms with standards that meet the Global Animal Partnership’s (GAP) standards for broiler breeds and rearing conditions (including light, litter, enrichment and stocking density).  Our birds will be processed using a multi-step CAS system and all standards will be third-party audited.

Our commitment to humanely treated animals and sustainably grown produce anchors our operations, which means that regardless of how you decide to customize your menus, you can count on getting the best ingredients.
