The aim of this seminar is to bring together chefs and industry suppliers to focus on actions the industry can take towards increased sustainability within the foodservice sector.

The event will highlight the demands of the industry to make the sector more sustainable and environmentally friendly via practical examples and case studies, exploring how suppliers can support these aims and showcase existing products and services that support industry sustainability.

This year we want to demonstrate as much as possible how more sustainable practices make business sense and are good for the bottom line.

This event will focus on the following core themes:
  • Eradicating Plastics in the Kitchen
  • Sourcing with Sustainability in Mind
  • Don't Throw Your Profit in the Bin - Efficiency in the Kitchen
