The main evaluation criteria are the origin of the food, the season, the production method, the degree of processing, and the impact on climate and resources. This indicator is an initiative of the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne. Participation: The Beelong Eco-score provides a simple information on the sustainability of food products, thanks to a unique methodology. It helps restaurants and caterers reduce their environmental impact, as well as brands and food industries to be transparent with their consumers.
