Unilever Food Solutions is encouraging the industry to put forward its best food waste strategy and enter the Sustainable Restaurant Association's newest category for a chance to be named champion at the 2013 SRA Awards.
The "Best Food Waste Strategy" category, sponsored by Unilever Food Solutions, is the first award to be open to non-SRA members that recognises and rewards businesses' innovative sustainability systems that make a positive difference to the environment.
All operators need to do is provide details of their business strategy for food waste management. This could include systems and equipment put in place to manage food waste, such as staff training and customer communication, along with any schemes or initiatives to reduce, reuse and recycle food waste.
The category is free to enter and the results will be announced at a ceremony on 4 February at OXO2 inside the OXO Tower, London, supported by SRA president Raymond Blanc and chef Bruno Loubet.
Details responding to the above criteria should be e-mailed to: Ed Franklin, SRA, on email@example.com or posted to The Sustainable Restaurant Association, 25 Gerrard Street, London, W1D 6JL no later than Monday 28 January.
