Food Made Good

About the Awards

Now in their fifth year and newly dubbed Food Made Good Awards, we continue to celebrate everything exciting about British restaurateurs, chefs and suppliers doing the extraordinary to make food good – delicious, ethical, sustainable.

Past winners make up a diverse cross section of the British and international food-service industry. With winners hailing from the south coast of England to the northern tip of Scotland and beyond, our Members’ passion for good food that doesn’t cost the earth is widespread, and ever growing.

Champions of yesteryear…

About the Awards rip daylesford foodThe Sustainable Restaurant of the Year award was won three years on the trot – albeit by two different venues – by Devon based ODE group. The 2015 awards saw ODE knocked off the top spot by Daylesford and Captain’s Galley, two strikingly different businesses that share not only the award but also a passion for good food!

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall took his place next to previous winners BBC4’s Sheila Dillon and Jill McDonald (of McDonald’s) as Raymond Blanc’s Sustainability Hero 2015. This simply adding to River Cottage’s mantelpiece of accolades having won the Sourcing Award three years in a row!

French hotel and restaurant Les Orangeries won and retained the crown of International Sustainable Restaurant of the Year in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Will they make it three in a row?

About the Awards Past Winners Food Made Good

In 2015, for the first time, we asked the British public to nominate the restaurant that left them not just with a full stomach, but a happy heart and a great taste in the mouth. This could be any UK restaurant which demonstrated its sustainable credentials – be it highlighting regional specialities through local and seasonal sourcing, concern for the environment and animal welfare or their community initiatives. We asked, and you answered, voting in your thousands to crown StarBistro as your People’s Favourite 2015.

Nominations have now closed for the People’s Favourite Award, and our judges are busy whittling down the nominations to find the top 5. The shortlist will be announced in the Independent on Sunday on 21st February, at which point voting will open. Learn more about the awards here
