Sustainable catering for your London office

Fooditude want to be a sustainable caterer and provide a catering service that is better for people and the planet. We are members of the Sustainable Restaurant Association and work closely with the Planet Mark to measure, report and reduce our carbon footprint. Our Sustainability Policy spells out everything we do in more detail.

We’ve also put together this A – Z  guide to help better understand sustainability terms in catering.

Sourcing

We believe sustainable catering starts with the right sourcing. Our menus are seasonal and all our food is cooked from scratch using fresh ingredients. We favour local produce to reduce food miles and choose organic produce wherever budgets allow. For example:

Society

We want to leave a positive impact on society – including our team members and the community we operate in. Some ways in which we try to do this are:

  • We have a long-standing relationship with Highshore School, a SEN school in Camberwell. We provide their students with work placements and employment opportunities
  • We have received the Mayor of London’s Healthy Workplace Award which recognises healthy workplace practices
  • We have signed the Social Mobility Pledge to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds get equal access to work opportunities
  • We ran an emergency response kitchen and distributed nearly 47,000 meals in our community during the COVID 19 lockdowns and won The Planet Mark’s Community Engagement award.

Environment

One of our biggest challenges is to operate with minimum impact on the environment; reducing our food waste is a top priority. To tackle this problem, we work with FoodCycle, OLIO, ORCA and Angry Monk. Want details about these partnerships? Check out this blog post. We have also become Guardians of Grub which you can learn more about here.

We measure and report our carbon footprint with Planet Mark.
