Restaurants from Denmark, Ireland, France and the United States will go up against with 14 of the UK’s finest for the Food Made Good Business 2017 award
The award is presented to the restaurant or foodservice business that has received the highest Food Made Good rating from the SRA in the last year.
SRA President Raymond Blanc OBE and Vice President Prue Leith will present the 17 Food Made Good Awards at a special ceremony on 5th October at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Lindley Hall where Raymond Blanc is also curating the lunch to be served to the 300 guests.
Andrew Stephen, Chief Executive of the SRA, said: “These 20 businesses prove that it’s possible to serve creative, delicious and sustainable food in any setting, whether fine dining, pub grub or college café. They should all serve as an inspiration to the whole sector to serve food that not only tastes good but does good too.”
