The UK’s first zero waste restaurant is looking to have its kitchen facilities re-designed, building on the success of its first 6 months in business.
Brighton-based Silo has a philosophy of sustainability, including a composting machine on the premises and by trading with local farmers.
When the restaurant first opened last September it had two Unox combi-ovens and a stone deck bakery oven installed, as well as other second-hand equipment, but owner and head chef Douglas McMaster believes it is already time to ring the changes.
“We had a small investment to begin with but we are now accommodating around 400 people a day, so we need a streamlined service kitchen,” he told Catering Insight.
He wants the kitchen to be re-designed in the next month or two and so is looking at getting quotes from catering equipment distributors immediately.
