Cardiff Met Catering is one of three finalists vying for Feed People Well award.

The University has been shortlisted for the Feed People Well award at the Food Made Good Awards 2018, the Sustainable Restaurant Association's (SRA) annual industry leading 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.

Andrew Phelps Head of Catering at Cardiff Metropolitan University  said: " We are delighted to be nominated for the Feed people well award and to maintain the three star rating by the SRA.

"This accolade is a credit to our catering team, recognising their hard work in the last year, and showing their commitment to the University's wider strategic plan."

The Feed People Well award, sponsored by Ozone Coffee Roasters, is designed to recognise the foodservice businesses doing the most to support their customers make good choices for them and their families when eating out.

The Food Made Good Awards recognise restaurants and food service businesses whose accomplishments in the last year have driven progress in the industry and demonstrated that all food can be made delicious, ethical and sustainable. 

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 is 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 Feed People Well 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 meet the very definition of a good restaurant or foodservice business.

In addition to the ten themed awards, there are a further seven categories including the People's Favourite, the only award to be decided by the public. Readers of delicious. magazine nominated hundreds of restaurants serving food that not only tastes good, but does good too. An expert panel of judges including the magazine's editor Karen Barnes then shortlisted three restaurants: The Black Swan at Oldstead, The Breakfast Club, Soho and Dusty Knuckle Pizza in Cardiff and the public has been voting for its favourite.

Raymond Blanc's Sustainability Hero 2018 sponsored by Open Blue Cobia, will also be revealed at the ceremony, following in the footsteps of the likes of Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
