What inspired you to support the Food Made Good Awards?
Lightspeed understands that the need to protect our planet is becoming more and more urgent. As the trend of eating out grows within younger generations they also demand a greater level of traceability in their food chain. We are delighted to partner with The SRA to help recognise the people within our industry that are taking steps to make the future of our planet a better one.
How do you see the category you’re aligning with help accelerate positive change in hospitality?
The evidence for the negative effects of long supply chains for meat goods is becoming more evident. We want to ensure this important subject is highlighted by recognising how the best in the industry are working to promote more veg and better meat.
What sustainability issue do you expect to rise to the fore in 2020 and why?
The explosion of meat alternatives taking place is something I’m sure will continue. Lightspeed Customer Neat Burger, backed by Lewis Hamilton, has just entered the market in London and I expect to see more and more meat alternatives appearing on normal menus as people come to see they are just as delicious and nutritious as meat options.
