Foodsteps say: “What children eat matters. We need urgent and sustained change in our food system to address both the climate and obesity crises we face. Supporting young people to make good food choices is a hugely important job, in which we’re proud to play our part.
We’re excited to be partnering with allmanhall to help independent schools play a leading role in reducing their food carbon footprints. Foodsteps is making its mark within foodservice and we look forward to engaging further with the independent education sector through allmanhall and the relationships the business has built over the years.”
The Foodsteps platform enables foodservice and catering providers to upload recipes in order to understand the environmental impact of their menu items via a clear rating system and carbon footprint per ingredient. The platform can be used to set and monitor targets, develop new recipes and improve a menu or product’s sustainability.
allmanhall’s managing director, Oliver Hall believes: “Over the next few years, when buying food, we will find sustainability or environmental impact data is as readily available as nutrition or allergen data is today. Enhanced understanding and availability of information are vital steps towards more sustainable food supply.”
