Yum! Produce Safety Advisory Council
The Yum! Produce Safety Advisory Council, an internal advisory group led by Taco Bell which continues to be an industry leader in produce safety, is made up of independent academics, competitors, suppliers, microbiologists, entomologists and other industry experts to share best practices and the latest science and technology in food safety in produce. The council brings these stakeholders together and asks, “What are we doing now, how can we do it better and what can we do collectively in the future to keep the produce in our supply chain safe?”
Making the Most of Our Resources
Yum! Brands is committed to first reducing, and then mindfully reusing or recycling, the waste generated at our restaurants. We have set an aspirational goal to divert fifty percent of the back-of-house operational waste generated by weight in our U.S. restaurants by 2020. To achieve this goal, we first determined our heaviest sources of waste: spent cooking oil, cardboard and food.
Leading with Heart at KFC
KFC believes that for leaders to be successful, they must be “smart with heart,” meaning that when they are themselves with their teams, they build a more authentic, open and honest culture that delivers greater results. Leading With Heart was designed to enable leaders from CEO to RGM to gain insights into their own behavior and identify why they do the things they do through the use of the Heartstyles Indicator, a character development tool. The transformational, two-day workshop provides participants with the opportunity to gain insight about their own behaviors, develop strength of character through self-awareness activities and become more effective in both their personal and professional lives. The program is currently available in more than 25 countries and by the end of 2018 will be translated into 24 languages.
