Introduction of the Menu Sustainability Index

From 17 August 2020 onwards, the Menu Sustainability Index (MSI) will be introduced in most of the ZFV Group's catering services and marked with two new symbols in the menu plan. This will enable guests to choose an environmentally friendly and/or balanced menu very easily.

The MSI is a scientifically based tool that rates meals based on nutritional balance and environmental friendliness. The Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) developed it together with ZFV as the implementation partner.
