Fresh fruit and vegetable supplier Reynolds has announced that it has been awarded the Sustainable Restaurant Association's (SRA) Approved Supplier accreditation - a first for a national fresh produce supplier.
Changes to the SRA approved supplier programme mean the criteria for becoming an SRA approved supplier are now significantly more comprehensive, with additional focus on corporate ethics and traceability.
Conor O'Brien, environmental coordinator at Reynolds commented: "To retain the accreditation, Reynolds had to complete a comprehensive survey across three main categories - sourcing, environment and society. We are extremely proud that Reynolds has retained the SRA approved supplier accreditation and it is testament to the hard work of the team and the goals that we have set, that this has been achieved."
Mark Lineham, managing director of the SRA, added: "Reynolds supply a number of our rated restaurants and our the approved supplier status means these businesses can continue to work with Reynolds with confidence in order to meet their sustainability goals."
