Vacherin recently launched its annual Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The study, produced by the caterer’s in-house sustainability lead Yeshna Mistry, details the changes and commitments the business has made over the past year to improve its social responsibility. The document also serves as an annual statement of progress and continuing commitment from the business to reduce its impact on the environment.
In the report, Vacherin highlights its prerequisite for sourcing local food that’s good for people and the planet. The company has pledged to procure 20% more vegetables by 2020 with independent think-tank Food Foundation. This will be achieved by giving chefs the tools to continue to create delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as enhancing the choice of plant-based options for its customers. This year has already seen a 38% increase in the volume of vegetarian meals that Vacherin serves.
Mistry said: “We are extremely proud of the significant progress we have made over the past few years and we are looking forward to achieving our future goals. Our efforts have advanced sustainability in the catering industry and now we want to do even more to spearhead a sustainable future.”
