Event Date: 30th October 2018
Location: Borough, London
This workshop is open to small and medum sized (SME) restaurants, cafes and caterers based in London.
Did you know that the equivalent of £6,000 worth of perfectly edible food is thrown in the bin every year by each small hospitality/food retail business in London? And that SMEs in the UK hospitality sector are overspending by nearly £92m per year on their energy bills as a result of inefficient technology and old equipment? At the same time, environment and climate issues are high on the public agenda with an increased awareness around food waste, plastic pollution, climate change and sustainable food consumption.
Join Advance London for a practical and interactive workshop that will allow you to take a fresh look at the resources flowing through your catering business. You’ll receive practical guidance on how to apply Circular Economy principles allowing you to identify opportunities to both generate economic value and reduce environmental impact. You’ll hear compelling case studies and interventions from industry experts and circular solutions providers and have the opportunity to network and collaborate with likeminded businesses.
Benefits of joining:
- Receive practical guidance on how to be a profitable restaurant with a positive environmental and social impact
- Connect and collaborate with other likeminded small restaurants in London
- Learn about other small restaurants that have achieved success with circular business models
- Become a member of the Advance London Circular Business Network with access to tools, guidance and networking opportunities
Advance London is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and LWARB, supporting SMEs in London to maximise opportunities within the Circular Economy.
