The organisers of the Conscious Hospitality Show, which will make its debut alongside this year’s Restaurant Show, have unveiled their line-up of speakers for the event.
Michelin starred chef patron and president of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, Raymond Blanc OBE, is confirmed to speak along with Dr Morgaine Gaye, a leading food futurologist, and Tristram Stuart, a food waste campaigner.
Blanc will talk to visitors about the importance of utilising seasonal ingredients and will also be signing copies of his ‘Kew on a Plate’ book. Dr Gaye will investigate the future of foodservice sustainability and discuss sourcing best practice, while Stuart will examine the practicalities of running a greener establishment.
The speakers will join a panel of industry experts to take part in a timetable of discussions that will address whether sustainability makes good business sense, the differences between local and global sourcing, and the challenges of motivating staff to buy into an ethical philosophy.
More than 350 companies will be exhibiting at The Restaurant Show and Conscious Hospitality Show, which take place at Olympia, London on 5-7 October.
