The Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) will be giving restaurateurs tips on how to make their businesses more environmentally friendly at the Real Food Festival Trade Day next week.
The event at Earls Court will take place on Monday 10 May and gives those working with food the chance to meet smaller producers from the UK as well as gain inspiration for their businesses.
Restaurateurs will be invited to attend the SRA's seminar with SeaWeb to discuss sustainably sourced fish and the organisation will be on hand to provide restaurateurs with the support they need to improve their sustainable performance.
Chefs Cyrus Todiwala of Cafe Spice Namaste, Mark Baines of Fifteen London and Santiago Guerrero will also be holding cooking demonstrations throughout the day, using products from the Discover the Origins Campaign such as Parma ham and Parmigiano Reggiano.
The Real Food Festival gives subsidised stands to up to 400 smaller producers allowing them access to the trade, buyers and the public. It runs from 7 to 10 May. Trade visitors can register for free by visiting www.realfoodfestival.co.uk.
