Gram has retained the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) Approved Supplier accreditation amid changes to the entry criteria.
Changes to the SRA approved supplier programme make for a more robust process, which is better for both supplier and members. The criteria for becoming an SRA approved supplier are now significantly more all encompassing and focuses more heavily on the ethics of a company rather than a marketing tool to be used by companies.
Glenn Roberts, managing director of Gram UK says: “To retain the accreditation, Gram had to complete a comprehensive survey that demonstrated the company’s on-going commitment to providing energy-efficient, sustainable products along with substantial evidence to back up our claims.
“We are extremely proud that Gram has retained the SRA approved supplier accreditation and it is testament to the on going hard work of the team and the company’s green ethos that run’s through every decision made”.
Recognised industry-wide and by The Sunday Times as the ‘Michelin Stars of Sustainability’, gaining SRA approval allows suppliers to market themselves by their environmental and social credentials.
It’s more good news for Gram which in November was the winner of the FCSI Sustainable Catering Equipment Award 2014 announced at the CESA Conference Gala Dinner. The company’s latest Generation 5 refrigeration product, the SuperiorPlus 72 cinched it for the judges.
