Food safety and food quality are of paramount importance to us. Our suppliers must follow Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and pass Good Manufacturing Practices audits for produce food safety. They must also adhere to our Gold Standard Food Safety and Quality Policy, to ensure only the best products available make their way to SUBWAY restaurants.
Working with our franchisee owned, Independent Purchasing Company (IPC), the SUBWAY brand is committed to pursuing sustainable initiatives that focus on energy efficiency, water and resource conservation, waste reduction and sustainable and ethical sourcing and supply chain management. We fully support principles of responsible farming, fishing and animal husbandry - for the long term sustainability of the earth's natural resources.
We continue to make strides in sustainable packaging, cleaning products and waste management as well as look for more efficient equipment and operational practices. Thanks to the work of SUBWAY franchisees and the IPC, many eco-friendly solutions have become part of our standard specifications and every day we work on more.
All SUBWAY restaurants are individually owned and operated by independent franchisees. Many SUBWAY franchisees pride themselves on being active, caring members of their communities and encouraging diversity. Also, many choose “environmentally friendly" options and business practices such as conserving electricity, water and reducing waste through recycling where facilities exist.
We recognize the importance of providing access for disabled patrons to Subway® restaurants. Subway Franchise Systems of Canada Ltd. works with its franchisees to assist them in understanding the requirements of provincial disability access laws, including provincial human rights codes, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, and local building codes. We actively encourage our franchisees to improve accessibility in their restaurants and we provide information to them on how to do so.
