Sustainable foodservice comes in a multitude of shapes and sizes and our framework has been developed to reflect this. 
Our three pillars of Sourcing, Society & Environment, take a broad and holistic view of your business. So whether you’re serving locally sourced ingredients and high welfare meat, inviting community groups to use your space, or investing in training to help your team use less energy and water, our framework captures all of the good things you are doing. 
What’s more, it will ignite your imagination to target areas that you hadn’t previously considered…
