About the company

The Events

Sustainability & Social Awareness

We are on a mission to be the first catering company to become single-use plastic-free by 2021 and work hard to ensure our whole operation is zero food waste. All waste from herb and veg trimmings go into making our Zero-Waste herb oil which can be seen across our menus. Our menus are seasonal, and we have reduced the meat offering and focused a lot on the development of plant-based dishes.

We’re making a meaningful impact through food; we’re proud to say that 10% of our employees are ex-offenders, who are vital members of the team.

We are really proud to partner with suppliers who have the same social awareness and ethos.

Across all of our sites, we use coffee supplied by Redemption Roasters, which comes from Aylesbury Prison where the young offenders are trained up in roasting, brewing and barista skills. This skill set helps to address the re-offending rate as they gain real work experience and are introduced to employment opportunities on release. We also recycle our coffee granules to a local allotment in Battersea for their wormery!

The Social Pantry Cafe uses Bad Boy Bakery as a supplier. This is a social enterprise inside of HMP Brixton that effectively helps inmates with learn and improve their baking skills and helps to reintegrate them into society and employment on release.
