Green & Fortune strive to make sustainable menus the norm for 2023 events

Award-winning caterer Green & Fortune has announced its pledge to put sustainability at the forefront of its food planning for 2023. A leading caterer in the conference, award and events sector, Green & Fortune has played host to some of the Capital’s major events and this pledge to sustainability looks to be a driving force for a shift within the industry as a whole.


The caterer’s new menus have gone beyond the expected practice for sustainability, not only when it comes to sourcing locally, but also with reducing waste and ensuring menus are ever-changing to reflect seasonal produce. The new menus are complemented by a wine list packed with independent growers and organic producers, along with a cocktail list with a nod to conscious drink suppliers.

Green & Fortune has its own farm in Northumberland, run by 3rd generation farmers Ian and Lynne, which brings economic benefit to the local community, as well as having a trackable supply chain from farm to fork. The animals are born and reared on the farm, which means the carbon footprint for the meat is as lean as it can be, with only 350 miles travelled.

Some examples of Green & Fortune’s latest menus can be discovered here:

- Braised cuttlefish, green harissa yoghurt, rye husk pancakes: cuttlefish is abundant in local waters and the pancakes use the entire husk of rye.

- Whole roast heritage carrots and beetroot, carrot leaf salsa verde, curried spelt: a dish that’s not peeled and that uses the entire carrot.

- Moroccan spiced butchers lamb sausages, root vegetable tabbouleh: using lamb from Green & Fortune’s Northumberland Farm, butchered in-house and using the entirety of the lamb.

John Nugent, Chief Executive at Green & Fortune, comments: 'Reducing food waste and food miles have long topped our agenda. These new menu options now enable organisers to send an even stronger message about their event to their delegates by using underused ingredients that might otherwise have gone to waste.'

Green & Fortune runs a number of event spaces accross the Capital - including Rose Court Events which opened just this year. With space for more than 700 delegates, this brand new events destination on the South Bank has nine unique and flexible spaces for hire.
