AN awards scheme that celebrates green initiatives in the foodservice industry is now open for entries.
The Footprint Awards acknowledges the efforts of foodservice companies in the fields of sustainability and environmental excellence, with gongs handed out in 14 different categories.
As well as competing within the categories, winners and runners-up also have the chance to enter the European Business Awards for the Environment (EBAE).
“The EBAE can only be entered by those who are put forward by an accredited scheme, such as the Footprint Awards,” said Christophe Stourton, communications director at the Footprint Awards.
“We are delighted to announce that Greenvale, winner of the Sustainable Use of Natural Resources award at the Footprints in 2011, are one of only 12 UK entries to have been selected to compete on the European stage alongside big brand names like M&S, Levi Strauss and Hanson.”
The deadline for entries to the 2012 Footprint Awards is March 19, with the event due to take place in London on May 24.
