|Footprint Awards celebrates its 5th birthday in 2015 and since its inception the level of sustainability and responsible business practice in the foodservice sector has changed beyond recognition.
Today, these two pillars are accepted as clear business principals in organisations up and down the supply chain, but the goal posts move constantly. What 5 years ago was regarded as foresighted innovation is today regarded as the bare minimum and it is no surprise that it is the most successful businesses that have embraced the concept, changed behavior, and are now leading the way towards a more sustainable and responsible industry.
The issues remain the same - finite resources, diminishing in the face of an expanding population. Food and water security, energy and climate are just some of the concerns amongst sustainability’s many environmental, social and economic facets; each one with an eye to the future at its heart.
Footprint Awards represents the annual celebration of the work that organisations in the foodservice industry are doing to in some way redress the balance for the benefit of themselves, their community and the industry at large. It is a celebration of initiative and innovation, of commercial imagination and endeavor.
