Tue 20th Mar 2018 - Operators back One Planet Plate campaign as diners slam environmental impact of menus
Multi-site operators back One Planet Plate campaign as diners slam environmental impact of menus: The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) will launch its One Planet Plate campaign on Saturday (24 March) as surveys revealed UK diners are dissatisfied with the social and environmental impact of restaurant menus. Two surveys were conducted on behalf of the SRA – one by restaurant guide Harden’s and the other by the National Union of Students (NUS). Only one-fifth (20%) of those questioned by Harden’s were satisfied with how ethical the food was at restaurants they dined in recently, while only 17% were satisfied with the venue’s impact on the environment. The NUS survey revealed a similar picture, with fewer than one-quarter (24.8%) of students satisfied with the environmental impact of the food on offer when they eat out, while fewer than one-third (30.4%) believe restaurants are meeting sufficient ethical standards. Almost nine in ten (86%) of those questioned by Harden’s said they thought restaurants should focus on creating a menu that helped them make sustainable choices. Chefs Raymond Blanc and Skye Gyngell and operators such as Carluccio’s, Jamie’s Italian, Wahaca and Azzurri Group-owned Zizzi are among those participating in the event, which aims to “change the food system one dish at a time”. Participating restaurants will feature a One Planet Plate dish on their menus. SRA chief executive Andrew Stephen said: “Our consumer surveys clearly demonstrate diners are crying out for some simple signposting to help them. One Planet Plate gives chefs the chance to draw attention to one delicious dish that epitomises their ethos.”
