UCSP Ltd on behalf of Plymouth University has won the the University of the Year 2016 category in the Food Made Good Awards, run by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in recognition of its commitment to producing sustainable, local, fresh and delicious food across it’s operation.
Jason Allbutt, UCSP Catering Operations Manager, was presented the award by SRA Presid
ent, Raymond Blanc OBE at the Food Made Good Awards on 22 March held in the Royal Horticultural Society’s Lindley Hall in London.
Mark Linehan, Managing Director of the SRA, said: “Now in their fifth year, albeit with a new name, the Food Made Good Awards recognise the incredible achievements of restaurants and the wider hospitality sector that few other awards do. With a transformation in diners’ attitudes towards food and how it is produced, we believe these awards reward the unsung heroes of hospitality who go way beyond just serving delicious food.”
The Food Made Good Awards are run by the Sustainable Restaurant Association to celebrate everything exciting about British hospitality businesses, chefs and s
uppliers doing the extraordinary to make food good – delicious, ethical, sustainable.
All but four of the awards are decided on the basis of the scores achieved in the Food Made Good rating during 2015. This assesses restaurants across the three pillars of sustainability; Sourcing, Society and Environment and the awards recognise the achievements of the very best sustainable foodservice businesses in the UK and globally.
