Sysco continues to trend in the upward growth direction, announcing new partners and new facilities all within the same month of January.

Its foodservice operations, both in the U.S. and abroad, saw favorable results, indicating significant growth in the sector.
According to the financial report, the company’s organics operations were a source of growth in the foodservice sector, and though food cost inflation in the U.S. was up by 2.6 percent, it did not negatively impact Sysco’s foodservice sales.
