Event caterers Seasoned ‘exceed’ recycling targets

London event caterer, Seasoned, has seen its recycling numbers ‘soar’ over the last year, it has claimed.

Total recycling of waste has gone up from 46.8% to 82.6% from 2017 to 2018 year end.

Mixed packaging recycling figures have also more than doubled as Seasoned ‘improves its efficiency across food waste, single-use plastics and alternative packaging’.

Colin Sayers, managing partner at Seasoned, said: “We are absolutely delighted at the figures for 2018 and look forward to continuing to improve this year.

“We are in discussion with our suppliers to opt for more environmentally friendly alternatives for cling film, which gets used in some of our deliveries.

“There is always something we can tweak that has an impact and so we will continue to look at our processes and apply creative ways to improve on our environmental impact”

Rather than using recycled plastic, Seasoned replaced all single-use bottles with glassware across all of its events around London.

It has also spoken to its suppliers about making better packaging choices as well as educating teams on the impact of recycling to attain its goal for a more ‘sustainable future in the industry’.

As part of a wider green initiative drive, Seasoned has also developed more sustainable menus - a range of vegan and vegetarian menus are available for clients to serve all their guests, not only those who make requests for dietary requirements.
