A Cornish catering company has joined the likes of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and other high profile chefs and restaurants in championing the Sustainable Restaurant Association‘s Too Good to Waste campaign.
The Too Good to Waste campaign was launched last month within the London area in an attempt to reduce the amount of food waste in restaurants, which equates to a massive 21 tonnes of food per average restaurant per year.
Sarah Talbot, who runs Miss Tea, is now pushing the message in Cornwall as she says letting her own food not go to waste has always been important to her company’s core values.
She said: “I always make sure that any leftovers from events that I have catered for gets packaged up and handed to people as they leave, I know some leftovers have even gone to feed local chickens, so it’s great for me to be the first company in Cornwall to sign up to this brilliant campaign.”
Mark Linehan, MD of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, added: “Food waste is a terrible problem across the hospitality sector. The aim of our campaign Too Good to Waste is to raise consumer awareness and get the industry to implement changes that will reduce the amount of food they waste.
“It’s great to have Miss Tea on board delivering the message to Cornwall.”
