The team at JCS Fish are celebrating ‘Green’ certification under the Investors in the Environment (iiE) environmental accreditation scheme.
The Sustainable Restaurant Association’s (SRA’s) ‘Food Made Good’ scheme, helps restaurateurs and caterers to find more sustainable sources of all kinds of produce and provides support for them to develop their businesses in more sustainable ways.
The SRA has a membership framework which encourages foodservice companies to seek accreditation under a star system for the Food Made Good Sustainability Rating. Completed online, the rating is generated through completion of a detailed survey which assesses the activity of each business under three pillars of sustainability: Sourcing, Society and Environment. A one, two or three-star rating is awarded depending on the survey score. Through the Food Made Good website, consumers can then search for the most sustainable restaurants in their own local area.
“We think the Food Made Good scheme is an excellent initiative to drive more sustainable practice into the everyday operations of restaurant and foodservice businesses and to encourage consumers to think more about sustainability when they eat out,” says Jack Coulbeck of JCS Fish. “We were delighted to support it by undertaking the supplier survey and becoming listed as a supplier of sustainably sourced fish.”
