Adande Refrigeration is the first manufacturer of refrigeration equipment to be awarded Approved Supplier status by the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
SRA membership is only open to suppliers which are genuinely more sustainable than standard alternatives and which offer, products and services to help SRA restaurant members fulfil their commitments to becoming more sustainable.
The SRA Supplier Approval scheme previously only available for food and drink producers is now being extended to cover other suppliers and service providers to the restaurant industry.
The SRA aims to make UK restaurants leaders in sustainability by helping them to source more responsibly, minimise their impact on the environment and engage with their communities.
Nigel Bell, chairman of Adande, said of his award: "The Adande insulated drawer refrigeration technology was invented to offer a genuinely better, more innovative alternative to conventional refrigeration and this Approval reflects our commitment to the cause of greater sustainability and indeed, our unsurpassed environmental credentials in the form of energy saving and food preservation."
