The Bay up for second sustainability award

A fish and chip shop is among 20 foodservice businesses up for a top sustainability award, two of which include Michelin starred restaurants.

The Bay Fish & Chips in Stonehaven has been named as a finalist in the Food Made Good Business 2017 award which will be presented to the restaurant or foodservice business that has received the highest Food Made Good rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA) in the last year.

The shortlist is not limited to UK outlets, restaurants from Denmark, Ireland, France and the United States all appear in the top 20, which also features a country pub and street food stall, as well as cookery schools, a workplace and university caterer.

It’s the second award the Stonehaven chippy is hoping to take home, appearing in the final of the Source Fish Responsibly category alongside Kingfisher Fish & Chips in Plymouth.

Owner of The Bay, Calum Richardson comments: “A brilliant achievement for Team Bay! To be named amongst such brilliant names in the foodservice industry is an honour. This shortlist recognises our commitment and devotion to sustainability behind everything we do at The Bay, but it also recognises our work with schools and academies educating the next generation about sustainability.” 

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.”

The winner will be announced at a ceremony on Thursday 5th October.
