The Sustainable Restaurant Award at the National Restaurant Awards looks a little different this year.
For 2018, we want to reward the restaurant that has made a positive difference with a sustainable initiative launched in the past 12 months. And, we’re opening it up to all UK restaurants, because we’re determined to find the most deserving winner, whether they’re a chip shop on the coast, an all-day diner under the arches or a bucolic gastro-pub. It’s not who or where you are but what you’ve done that we’re interested in.
Accelerating change toward a more sustainable food system
Food Made Good is the core programme run by the SRA, bringing foodservice businesses and change makers together around key issues of sustainability. The programme is rooted in the focus areas of the SRA’s Sustainability Framework, and aims to build a community of passionate professionals and consumers working together to make food good for people and the planet.
Our sustainability framework is built on the three pillars: of Sourcing, Society and Environment. This holistic approach to sustainability is currently helping over 6,000 foodservice sites achieve tangible and measurable change.
Our Food Made Good community is the go to place for anyone who shares our goal of making sustainability a part of the DNA of every restaurant and foodservice business. We need to work together if we’re going to create the amount of change that our food system needs. Think of the community as a hub that’s open 24/7 where SRA Members can ask, learn, share and connect.
Round tables, training workshops, thought leadership sessions or simply networking drinks. Food Made Good events allow Members to network and learn from industry leaders. All Members are welcomed to the annual Food Made Good Awards, a highlight in the calendar hosted by iconic chef and SRA President Raymond Blanc OBE
Specific challenges require specific solutions. The SRA delivers a wide range of consultancy services for hospitality businesses of all sizes. Specialist areas include waste, energy and supply chain audits.
Well trained staff lead to greater innovation and efficiency, are less likely to leave and are an essential component of any hospitality business looking to operate more responsibly. SRA Members receive discounted rates on all of the SRA’s CPD accredited Foodservice Sustainability courses.
Thousands of chefs in all types of restaurants and food outlets, from the Michelin-starred ones to fish and chip shops, are among those working with Food Made Good, demonstrating that good food can be produced sustainably no matter the style of venue.
