The one-day course at the school in Axminster takes delegates through the processes of ethical food selection and menu construction with a focus on how to increase new business, reduce waste and boost profit.
Accredited by City & Guilds, the course is designed to give chefs and food and beverage managers a practical guide to running a more sustainable business.
A spokesperson for River Cottage said: "The approach underpins the teaching at the teaching at the River Cottage Professional Chefs’ School, which launched in April, delivering a range of nationally-recognised qualifications, including apprenticeships and City & Guilds accreditations. The one-day food sustainability course is one of the first programmes to take place and there has already been a lot of interest in the course prior to tickets being released."
Sustainability is at the heart of River Cottage's restaurant and chef's school business. It received one of the highest ratings from the SRA last year and won the Sourcing category in this year's SRA Awards.
