Angel Hill Food Co, an Atalian Servest brand, is one of three foodservices businesses named on the shortlist for the Source Fish Responsibly category, at the Food Made Good Awards 2018, the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s (SRA) annual industry accolades for the most progressive purveyors of food and drink.
This award is one of 17 that will be presented at a special ceremony on 1st October at FEST Camden in London. The Food Made Good Awards recognise restaurants and foodservice businesses whose extraordinary accomplishments in the last year are helping diners use the power of their appetites wisely.
Ross Houghton, Group CSR Manger said: “I am proud of the commitment we have made towards the responsible sourcing of our seafood. It is my belief that if more companies take a more sustainable approach to sourcing, we can ensure that fish remains on the menu for generations to come.”
The Source Fish Responsibly award is designed to recognise foodservice businesses which have taken decisive action to serve their customers delicious seafood dishes while ensuring there are plenty more fish in the sea, helping diners through what can be murky waters. The last year has seen many restaurants switch away from salmon towards trout and replace seabass with bream, for example.
Raymond Blanc OBE, President of the SRA, said: “The Food Made Good Awards shortlist always delivers incredible examples of what the leaders in our industry are doing to create a better food future. Whether it’s chefs creating beautiful new menus that celebrate vegetables or finding new ways of using less plastic, the Food Made Good Awards are the perfect way to celebrate the people and businesses using food as a force for good. I would urge all chefs and restaurateurs to take inspiration from these sustainability pioneers and follow their lead.”
The Source Fish Responsibly award is one of ten categories that align with the ten key themes of the SRA’s Food Made Good sustainability framework. Operators fulfilling all ten are the very definition of a good restaurant or foodservice business.
