“A game of 20 questions with the waiter at the restaurant isn’t our idea of fun when eating out….”
We Brits now enjoy an incredible 8 billion meals a year which we haven’t had to cook. More than ever, we are curious to know where our food came from, how it was produced, and whether our enjoyment of it is at the expense of others. When shopping for food at home, we can look at the packages and spot the certifications to help guide our decisions, but what can we do when we eat out? We might buy only free range eggs and Fairtrade coffee at home, but it’s often hard to tell whether our local café is quite so conscientious. And a game of 20 questions with the waiter at the restaurant isn’t our idea of fun when eating out with friends.
“Indulge in your passion for dining out without having to check your principles in at the cloakroom.”
Food Made Good is here to let you indulge in your passion for dining out without having to check your principles in at the cloakroom. We assess restaurants, cafés and caterers for their sourcing, impact on society and environment and let you know how they are doing with our simple Star Rating. Think of them as the Michelin stars of sustainability, rewarding excellence for people and planet.
We want to turn your passion for food into action, so join our campaigns, check out the events and offers pages and next time you are choosing a place to eat out, look out for our Stars in windows, on menus and websites, or check out our Diners’ Guide for good places to eat out.
