The Castle wins a Sustainable City Award for the second year in a row!

The Castle has won another Sustainable City Award, this time in the Sustainable Food category. The award was presented at Mansion House on 19 March 2013. We were also shortlisted for Resource Conservation. We were very pleased and surprised to receive this award, especially given that we are up against other businesses that focus solely on dining and catering. This award recognises the efforts that we've put in over the past three years to minimise the environmental impact of our cafe. We've been able to make great progress with the following measures:

  • our food is prepared on-site (no packaging)
  • we grow our own food in our organic garden (no food miles)
  • we purchase local, seasonal, fairtrade,organic products as much as possible
  • our tuna is pole & line caught
  • our ham is high-welfare and from dorset

Basically, we aim to follow the Seven Principles of Sustainable Food.

 In 2012 The Castle won the Sustainable Procurement and Sustainable Buildings categories. City of London have produced a short video about the awards.
