The annual Food Made Good Awards are open for entries
Does your favourite restaurant or chef have what it takes to win a Food Made Good Award? The Sustainable Restaurant Association's annual awards are ready to take your order.
Mon 24 Jun 2019
The Food Made Good Awards are back and open for entries. Part of the Sustainable Restaurant's Association's ethos to promote ethical, sustainable and delicious food and practices across the industry, there are 20 awards up for grabs for Sustainable Restaurant Association members.
And 2019 sees the introduction of three new categories at the Food Made Good Awards. There's a new award for Chef of the Year. Open to all UK chefs, the SRA is looking for someone who conjures up tasty solutions to climate change and who is helping to change our food systems for the better.
Also new in this year will be a Product of the Year award. Products and services are eligible to enter, if they've had a measurable positive effect on consumer behaviour or the food system in general.
And lastly, to further the cause of the SRA's One Planet Plate campaign, which highlights a low environmental impact dish on over 200 menus across the UK, there will be an award for the best One Planet Plate recipe.
Andrew Stephen, Chief Executive of the SRA, said: “Restaurants, the wider foodservice sector and the businesses that supply them are channelling their creativity and innovation to help fix food.
The Food Made Good Awards are the perfect platform to recognise these pioneering individuals, operators and their initiatives to tackle climate change in the most delicious way possible and share them extensively. This year we’re casting our net wider than ever before in our exhaustive search for the ideas effecting measurable change to the way we eat.”
The People’s Favourite award, in partnership with delicious magazine, is open for nominations from the public for the month of July, before a public vote on a shortlist for the winner in September.
Cardiff's Dusty Knickle Pizza’s popular brand of locally sourced ingredients and aluminium reusable boxes won the largest slice of the votes in 2018.
Other winners in 2018 included ODE-truefood scooped the Reduce Reuse Recycle award for running a community-wide campaign to rid its village of the scourge of single-use plastic, JD Wetherspoon won the Waste No Food award for its successful wholesale war on food waste and Professor Tim Lang, founder of the Centre for Food Policy, was named Raymond Blanc Sustainability Hero.
The Food Made Good Awards, the only awards dedicated to the trailblazers of sustainable food service, will be presented by its President, Raymond Blanc OBE, in front of more than 500 of the UK’s best chefs, restaurateurs and suppliers at Troxy in East London on 5 November.
