On the 16th of October, we celebrate World Food Day. The international celebration commemorates the date that the United Nations Food And Agriculture Organisation was founded, with exhibitions, performances, contests and concerts highlighting the importance of food security and sustainability. As we reflect on global hunger and successful agricultural systems, we must consider how sustainable catering can help to shape the future. Food Champs strive to source ingredients responsibly and reduce waste, playing a small but important role in avoiding the depletion of natural resources and maintaining ecological balance.
What Is Sustainable Catering?
Food Champs consider sustainability in all of our business practices, from sourcing ingredients to serving food. We research suppliers and carefully select the produce going into our dishes without limiting menu choices or compromising on taste.
We endeavour to use suppliers who uphold high welfare standards and prioritise sustainable farming practices. Choosing ingredients that are grown with care and animal produce from free-range farms not only has a more positive impact on the environment but also tastes better. A real win-win!
Local, Seasonal Produce
Supporting local farmers and sourcing seasonal produce is the cornerstone of sustainable catering. The closer your food is grown to you, the lower its carbon footprint. After all, why fly in your strawberries from overseas when the farm down the road is growing them? Moreover, fresh, seasonal ingredients harvested at the peak of ripeness deliver a burst of flavour that can’t be replicated by out-of-season alternatives.
Minimising Food Waste
It is globally estimated that up to one-third of food produced is thrown away uneaten. Food Champs is run by professional caterers with years of experience in the industry. We accurately forecast the amount of food needed for your event and plan portion sizes accordingly. This ensures that all attendees are satisfied and well-fed, without leaving plates full of food left over.
As the world grapples with plastic pollution, using reusable cutlery and crockery plays a critical role in sustainable catering. Single-use plastics contribute significantly to environmental degradation and pose a severe threat to marine life. For larger events, Food Champs provide ceramic crockery and metal cutlery as part of their catering package. This is a more sustainable option but also feels much better to eat off/with!
