Bidvest Foodservice is to host its first ever “plate2planet” summit in London this November to mark a year since its launch.
The day-long event will feature high-profile speakers and delegates from across the industry who will discuss some of the most pressing sustainability issues faced by the foodservice sector. This inaugural event will take place on Tuesday November 8 at Barber-Surgeon’s Hall, Moorgate.
Hosted by Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet Mark, and featuring high-profile speakers and panel debates – including how to tackle waste management and the healthy eating agenda – the programme promises, says Bidvest, to be “lively and interactive”. Influencers will be attending from a wide range of organisations to share ideas, best practice and thoughts on how to ensure a sustainable future.
Set up by Bidvest last year, plate2planet.co.uk, aims to bring together some of the UK’s most progressive foodservice companies to discuss and share ideas around sustainability issues. The website has since grown to include four new industry partners, as well as hundreds of thought-leadership articles exploring topics such as effective waste management and sugar reduction.
“We are very proud that less than a year on from launch, plate2planet is hosting its first industry summit,” said Shirley Duncalf, head of sustainability at Bidvest Foodservice.
“We set up this initiative with the hope that it would spearhead dialogue and change within the foodservice industry. The expansion and popularity of the website over the past year is phenomenal and plate2planet Live will help us shape the direction of change in the future.”
