ARAMARK Recognized as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies

ARAMARK, the provider of the University of Southern Maine’s dining services, is one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies, as determined by the Ethisphere Institute. The Ethisphere Institute is a leading international think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability.

This recognition is one of many that ARAMARK has recently received, including being named to FORTUNE magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” list for 2012. ARAMARK was also ranked among the Global Outsourcing 100, which recognizes companies that provide the best service worldwide.

“Operating with integrity has been a part of our company’s mission and culture for more than 75 years,” said Joseph Neubauer, chairman and chief executive officer of ARAMARK. “These accolades wouldn’t be possible without our 250,000 employees around the world who conduct business in a responsible manner and demonstrate commitment to service, excellence, innovation and integrity millions of times each day in everything they do.”

ARAMARK is a leader in professional services, providing award-winning food services, facilities management and uniform and career apparel to health care institutions, universities and school districts, stadiums and arenas and businesses around the world. ARAMARK provides food and dining at nine locations across USM’s Portland and Gorham campuses, including restaurants, cafes and convenience stores.
