about us

From a modest start in 2010, when two restaurateurs and a pair of sustainability experts launched the not-for-profit organisation with 50 founder members, we now work across 8,000 member sites. These cover a smorgasbord of foodservice businesses, from high end to high street, from street-food staples to workplace canteens, from independent cafés to Michelin-starred restaurants.

What we do

Our vision is to be the intersection of the foodservice industry and the sustainable food movement. We want to make sustainability part of the DNA of every foodservice business, while inviting consumers to join in and celebrate what makes food good.

We do this through:

● Providing a robust framework for what makes a restaurant ‘good’
● Using our industry standard Sustainability Rating to benchmark success and construct clear action plans
● Promoting best practice and inspiring healthy competition
● Offering bespoke consultancy, training and support
● Developing a meaningful database of sustainability contacts in foodservice


The SRA is a community of foodservice businesses, suppliers and discerning diners working together to create a sustainable foodservice industry for people and planet. We firmly believe that by working as a collective we can improve the food on our plate which in turn will have a positive, measurable impact on the wider food system.

Everyone has a role to play. Whether you’re a food service business seeking to overcome challenges, a supplier who can provide the solutions, or a diner seeking to make better choices when eating out, we can connect you with our network of progressive thinkers.
