Vacherin demonstrates success in sustainability

London caterer Vacherin has coupled record sales levels with sustainability improvements, according to the firm's latest sustainability and CSR report.

In its second Vacherin Cares Report the company said it has made improvements on its environmental, economic and social impact.

It noted sustainability landmarks such as the removal of 4,700g of salt, 15,000g of saturated fat and 21,000g of sugar from its meals, when compared to high-street brands.

Vacherin's sustainability lead, Anthony Kingsley, said: "We offer compelling evidence that you need not decouple commercial success from embedded sustainability - in fact actually the opposite is true.

"Our customers and clients are screaming for more provenance and healthier food - and transparency in how it is made. Consumers, employees and businesses want business partners to make CSR commitments."

He added: "At Vacherin, our passion for responsibly sourced and healthy food has been vital to our success and we want our customers to be just as passionate about food as we are."

The company has introduced initiatives such as the healthy eating range 'Nutritious and Delicious', 'Red Meat Free Mondays' and the 'I'mPerfect' fruit and vegetable scheme, which champions imperfect looking produce to reduce waste.
