About plate2planet

Serving up sustainability in foodservice

Did you know…?

  • 90% of foodservice customers claim sustainability is important to their business (Bidfood)
  • 18-20 million tonnes of food is wasted each year in the UK alone and over half this waste occurs in the food industry (WRAP)
  • Around 25% of the energy used in catering is expended in the preparation, cooking and serving of food, so it is crucial that kitchen equipment is as efficient as possible (Carbon Trust)
  • Seven in every ten people say that buying sustainable fish is important, but a third of people aren’t sure how to choose sustainable fish products (Defra)

Just some of the sustainability discussions and challenges that plate2planet will help to tackle.

Working in partnership, plate2planet aims to act as a central hub:

  • Bringing together foodservice organisations who are happy to share experiences, ideas, news and best practice in sustainability
  • Helping us all drive sustainability progress together, across our organisations, supply chains and food offerings
  • Offering a source of inspiration, ideas and tangible tools to guide you in who’s who and what’s what in accreditations and certifications, how to generate savings, achieve zero to landfill, source sustainably and how to go on your own CSR journey
