Gator Dining Services has a very close relationship with our main distributors Sysco(C) and FreshPoint(C) as well as local, community-based suppliers. Gator Dining Services has a responsible purchasing hierarchy in which local, sustainable foods are prioritized where ever feasible. It is our goal to match, local, in-season product with our dining service needs.
Accounts payable and velocity reports are requested from our distributors to itemize and account for these products.
