Non-food waste is an issue for every person and business. With this in mind, in 2016 FoodSpace moved to using 100% compostable coffee take away cups and this January their FoodSpace reusable Cup was launched. Customers get discounts when they present any reusable cup and the FoodSpace team always encourage and educate on why it’s important that we change our attitude towards disposing of non-recyclable coffee cups, bottles etc.

“As chefs we have a responsibility to purchase the best produce because in-turn this leads to a higher quality of dish created and enjoyed. It is no longer about just food, we have to look across all sections and realise the impact we have on our environments both socially, physically and ecology. It all starts with local and you build from there,” said Conor.
