Sustainability is top of the agenda at The Restaurant Show 2019, with the event playing host to sustainable innovations from exhibitors including JenPak Ltd’s new eco-friendly range of crockery made from Bagasse – also known as recycled sugarcane. There are reusable to go cups made from coffee waste from FSG Tableware Ltd as well as sustainable LED neon signs from SmiLED Light and many more environmentally friendly solutions to discover.
Over in Bunzl Lockhart’s Catering Equipment Expo, visitors will be able to view a planet-friendly product that’s been attracting plenty of industry attention – the Recycled Plastic Bottle Jackets from Continental Chef Supplies (CCS), which are part of the Chefs Against Plastic Waste campaign.
This year’s show aims to be as sustainable as possible and organisers have once again partnered with FareShare – the UK’s largest food redistribution charity. The charity has been working with the food industry for more than 20 years to identify quality, in date surplus food that can be redistributed to local charities.
At the end of the show FareShare will conduct a surplus food collection service for all exhibitors, preventing unnecessary food and drink going to waste, and offering all suppliers the chance to donate their excess products to feed people in need.
