Sustainable restaurants on the rise
Restaurants and the hospitality sector have faced disruption over the last two years with closures due to COVID-19, employee shortages post-Brexit and growing demand for sustainable restaurants. In facing these challenges and changing customer expectations, restaurants are increasingly focused on adopting greener practices, including generating zero waste and net zero emissions.
Restaurants now need to embrace sustainable strategies such as new ways of managing operations and business practices to tackle wastage. By reducing carbon emissions and adopting sustainable business practices, restaurants and cafes of all sizes can improve operational efficiency and meet changing customer demand.

Why is sustainability so important to restaurants?
Being sustainable is not just about trying to reduce our carbon footprint, it is also about us, the people. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed more pressure on food and beverage businesses to follow best practice regarding safety and hygiene. Anyone working in food or beverage production, preparation, or sale need to be aware of their responsibilities and put them into practice.
