Public Sector Catering makes plant-based demonstration available online

10th May 2022 - 10:34
Public Sector Catering has put the first Plant-Based Week cooking demonstration online for those who were unable to attend.

The 54 minute video features Carole Mitchell from the Eating Better alliance who discusses their latest plant-based report, which was published last week. The report, which can be viewed here, includes top tips to help and encourage public sector caterers to introduce more plant-based dishes to their menus.

The video also showcases Winchester University as a case study where they have been serving more plant-based dishes and ‘less but better’ meat from local suppliers. The menu change has resulted in the university reducing its carbon footprint by 39%.

Lastly David Foad, group editor of Public Sector Catering, spoke with Lisa Marley programme coordinator & chef trainer from Proveg as she demonstrated some of her plant-based dishes. Watch the demonstration here
