How can we drive big picture sustainability vision by engaging with our restaurant customers across our Central London ownership?
The Crown Estate and SRA have partnered together to drive tangible change in restaurants across Regent Street and St James’s through working on an ambitious pledge of reducing food waste by 25% by May 2020.
Together with The Crown Estate, The SRA has engaged 12 pioneering F&B operators as part of The Regent Street & St James’s Food Waste Pledge, providing them with expert advice and support to help them achieve this ambitious but achievable target. This collective goal is the first of its kind in the sector and is one that both the SRA and The Crown Estate hope will inspire more restaurants across London and beyond to act on food waste by measuring, setting targets and managing it.
Supporting the Crown Estate in its goal to help Regent Street and St James’s restaurants to reduce their impact on the environment, this project sees the SRA providing hands-on consultancy to participating restaurants. Through hosting workshops, supporting on-site food waste audits and providing on-going waste reduction resources, the restaurants are supported each step of the way in this challenging initiative.
Food waste data is monitored by SRA on an on-going basis to track changes, measure reduction and identify patterns to ensure restaurants are receiving targeted and tailored support. In addition to these practical tools, The Crown Estate is also supporting participating restaurants with a marketing & PR campaign to raise the profile of the eco-conscious restaurants in the area and showcase the creativity of each restaurant team. Tackling food waste in a busy kitchen is no easy task. The Crown Estate hope that the stories, experiences and measurable change resulting from this project inspires other restaurants and destinations alike to step up and address the food waste issue.
