Sustainable Food Guide

The SFGuide sets out the issues to make food "more sustainable". It tackles in detail:

SOCIAL - Fair Trade, Social Audit, Ethical, Local Sourcing

ECONOMIC - Internal Operations, BSE Lessons, Hormones, Antibiotics Additives

As a standard we use 'Food for Life' Catering Mark

The SF Guide suggests what you can do to improve sustainable food provision, by adopting & adapting a quality system. There are many skills to develop, from basic cooking and healthy food procurement to tracing environmental and ethical impacts - many thousands of miles away. These skills could be promoted with vocational qualifications based on Sustainable Food Production National Occupational Standards
