We have been shortlisted for the Food Made Good Business of the Year award, published by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA).
The company is joined by 20 other businesses including ten independent restaurants, a hotel, two pubs, half a dozen universities, as well as a cookery school.
The winner, the business to have achieved the highest score in the Sustainable Restaurant’s Association’s industry leading sustainability rating, will be announced at the Food Made Good Awards ceremony on 1 October at Fest Camden.
The SRA’s rating assesses businesses across all aspects of their policies and operations along with their influence across ten key themes under the headings of Sourcing, Environment and Society. Together these define a ‘good’ restaurant or foodservice business.
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’s 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.”
Wendy Bartlett, founder, bartlett mitchell added: “We are incredibly proud to be shortlisted and are very much looking forward to the event in October.
“Given the nature of our business, sustainability sits at the heart of what we do, so to be recognised in this way is testament to the work that goes into such activities by our #bmFamily every day.”

Raymond Blanc’s Sustainability Hero 2018 will also be revealed at the ceremony, following in the footsteps of the likes of Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal
