Cafe St Honoré named among Top 20 most sustainable food service businesses

Cafe St Honoré has been named on the shortlist for the much coveted award for the most sustainable foodservice business alongside two Michelin starred restaurants, a fish and chip shop, country pub and street food stall, as well as cookery schools, a workplace and university caterer.

Chef Director of Cafe St Honoré, Neil Forbes, said: “We are all thoroughly delighted to be in the top 20 businesses at the annual Food Made Good Awards. To be shortlisted alongside some of the most highly regarded places in the UK is a real honour. It’s due to the hard work and commitment from my team at Café St Honoré, and we are all looking forward to the awards in October. Fingers crossed!”

Restaurants from Denmark, Ireland, France and the United States are vying with 14 of the UK’s finest for the Food Made Good Business 2017 award which will be presented to the restaurant or foodservice business that has received the highest Food Made Good rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in the last year, at the Food Made Good Awards on 5th October.

Andrew Stephen, Chief Executive of the SRA, said: “These 20 businesses prove that it’s possible to serve creative, delicious and sustainable food in any setting, whether fine dining, pub grub or college café. They should all serve as an inspiration to the whole sector to serve food that not only tastes good but does good too.”

SRA President Raymond Blanc OBE and Vice President Prue Leith will present the 17 Food Made Good Awards at a special ceremony on 5th October at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Lindley Hall where Raymond Blanc is also curating the lunch to be served to the 300 guests.

The Food Made Good Awards recognise restaurants and food service businesses whose accomplishments in the last year have driven progress in the industry and demonstrated that all food can be made delicious, ethical and sustainable.

The SRA has updated its Food Made Good rating in 2017 and assesses businesses on their policies, operations and influence across ten key actions which define what a ‘good’ restaurant or foodservice business should do.
