Join the most prominent names in the foodservice sector at the most glamorous awards programme in the industry, to recognise excellence in sustainability and responsible business across the supply chain.
Footprint Awards 2012 winners will be announced at an extraordinary evening on 24th May at 8 Northumberland Londons most central venue. We hope you will be able to join us.
Its a special evening because its the only one of its kind.
The stunning venue itself, the Back to the Future theme to the fascinating menu designed by Executive Chef David Collison, the ingredients, staff uniforms, table linen, crockery, fine wine and cocktails - all will tell a story of sustainability. The evening is about showing that running your business responsibly can also titillate the taste buds!
And to spice things up, this years theme is Back to The Future, which will feature some surprising creations and will open our eyes to how we can think differently about some older practices and flavours that are returning to the mainstream.
The Footprint Awards are more than just industry recognition; there is a legacy too.
The Footprint Awards in 2011 started a student internship scheme supported by sponsors to create new research and to attract new talent into sustainability in the foodservice industry. Thats worth supporting when students are struggling to find work experience.
