Testimonials from our members

“Our customers tell us that the broad issues around sustainability are more and more important. The SRA gives us the support and confidence to start the journey and make positive changes”

Simon Kossoff

Former Chairman, Carluccio's

“The ongoing support and advice we receive from our Sustainability Account Manager at the SRA is absolutely invaluable. Previously we were stabbing in the dark, now we know what we’re aiming at”

Darren Proctor

Executive Head Chef, Sheffield Hallam University

“When we first joined the SRA we were a good company with a desire to improve. The SRA has helped us develop into one of the most sustainable restaurant groups in the country, which is one of our proudest achievements. Having good intentions is a great start but we’ve really benefitted from the practical support they’ve given us over the years.”

Will Beckett

Co-founder, Hawksmoor

“We have been proud members of the SRA since 2014, and believe its work in the industry has been vitally important. The SRA team has not only helped us to achieve a 3 Star rating, but provides continual support to advance our environmental and social responsibility on nearly a daily basis. The SRA is a mine of information, best practice and support. We would recommend that any business in the food service industry to engage with this organisation in building a more sustainable future”

Anthony Kingsley

Lead Sustainability & CSR, Vacherin

“Modern luxury goes hand in hand with sustainability. Sustainability and social responsibility have always been at the heart of what we do. We undertook this assessment with the Sustainable Restaurant Association because we wanted to find out where we are today, how to improve and how to communicate what we are doing to our guests”

John Scott

CEO, Belmond Group

“Sourcing is definitely where it started, but putting the pubs at the heart of their communities is a key part of it too. The SRA’s rating was a really good way for us to measure ourselves. To achieve Two Stars was brilliant. But it has also given me a chance to look at ourselves as a business and reflect on what more we can do”
