The race is on to find the ideas and innovations that have had the biggest impact on the foodservice sector in the last year, as well as the most sustainable foodservice business, as the Sustainable Restaurant Association's 2018 Food Made Good Awards is now open for entries.
The 17 Food Made Good Awards reward restaurants and foodservice businesses whose extraordinary accomplishments in the last year have driven progress in the industry and demonstrated that food can be made delicious, ethical and sustainable.
Andrew Stephen, Chief Executive of the SRA, said: “With almost nine out of ten diners wanting restaurants to create menus that help them use their appetites wisely, and heightened consumer awareness of issues like plastic and food waste, there’s never been a better time for restaurants to showcase the ways in which they’re addressing the major issues affecting the food system. The Food Made Good Awards provide the perfect platform for the best sustainable innovators of our time.”

Cardiff Met is the first university in Wales and the fifth in the UK to receive a three star rating by the UK’s leading sustainability accreditation and membership body for the hospitality and food service sector.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) has awarded Cardiff Met’s catering team a three star ‘Food Made Good’ rating – the maximum rating in this category.
The three stars rating, regarded as the Michelin stars of sustainability, is achieved by completing a rigorous and wide-ranging assessment that covers the three pillars of sustainability: sourcing, society and environment.
Cardiff Met’s Catering and Hospitality Service Manager, Andrew Phelps, commented: “We are delighted to be awarded the three star rating by the SRA.
“This accolade is a great credit to the catering team, recognising their hard work in the last year, and showing their commitment to the University's wider strategic plan.”
Cardiff Met’s catering team has also been shortlisted in the forthcoming SRA awards in the ‘Feed People Well’ category. The award is one of 17 that will be presented by SRA President Raymond Blanc and Vice President Prue Leith at a special ceremony on 5 October at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Lindley Hall.
