Bon Appétit has adopted Thrive® Culinary Algae Oil as its preferred cooking oil in its more than 650 cafés in 33 U.S. states.

TerraVia, an algae-based food, nutrition and specialty ingredients company headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and Bon Appétit Management Company, a pioneer in environmentally and socially responsible practices, have announced that Bon Appétit has adopted Thrive® Culinary Algae Oil as its preferred oil. The oil was chosen for its unique combination of nutrition, culinary and sustainability benefits that align with the company’s kitchen principles.

Bon Appétit Management Company operates more than 650 cafés in 33 states for corporations, universities, and specialty venues, including Google, University of Pennsylvania, and the Getty Center.

“We love Thrive® Algae Oil and have been testing it for a year now,” said Fedele Bauccio, Founder and CEO of Bon Appétit. “Using Thrive our chefs can create flavorful, nutritious meals that are also healthy for the planet. We are excited to more broadly adopt this truly innovative, game changing oil across Bon Appétit.”

“The leadership Bon Appétit has shown with its commitment to nutrition and sustainability is unparalleled,” said Apu Mody, CEO of TerraVia. “They lead by example in the care they put into the food they serve to their guests every day. Their deep commitment directly aligns with TerraVia’s mission to use algae, the mother of all plants, to deliver the world’s healthiest oils and ingredients with the lowest impact on our planet’s scarce resources.”

Bon Appétit is a sector of Compass Group, the world’s largest food service provider serving 4 billion meals a year in around 50 countries across sectors as diverse as corporate and college campuses, senior living, military operations and hospitals. TerraVia and Compass Group, through its specialty purchasing division, Foodbuy, recently entered a supply agreement appointing TerraVia as a preferred food oil provider to Compass clientele nationwide.

TerraVia has also expanded their product lines to include a canola blend for high volume uses, such as deep frying, created to deliver benefits in sustainability and nutrition while addressing the economics for high volume outlets.

The commercial agreement with Compass Group is designed to give TerraVia national distribution of Thrive. Since Compass and Foodbuy work with major distributors like Sysco, the partnership is expected to give Thrive a presence in warehouses across the country and significantly expand distribution by making it available to restaurants, hotels and other food service operations throughout the U.S.

Thrive is currently available as a premium cooking oil in grocery stores and online through Amazon. The retail oil contains 75% less saturated fat and 25% more monounsaturated fat than olive oil.
