Sheffield-based Lavang achieve a Two-Star Food Made Good Sustainability Award from the Sustainable Restaurant Association!
16 October 2023
Our amazing Yorkshire Mark member, Lavang, have received a Two-Star Food Made Good Sustainability Award from the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), making them the only SRA graded restaurant in Sheffield!
In 2021, Lavang achieved Carbon Neutral status and are certified as an official CarbonNeutral® company, covering all their operations. This marked the culmination of many years of work to reduce their emissions and establish carbon offsetting projects that directly benefit people and communities within their supply chain.
Lavang have now achieved an impressive 69% in the Food Made Good Standard for their Sustainability Award. This is a massive achievement as most businesses don’t often reach the two-star threshold upon their first submission. This award reflects the steps they have taken to tackle food waste and the great work they are doing across the business for people and the planet.
Scoring exceptionally high on the Society Pillar, Lavang have made a positive impact on their community through fundraising efforts and getting involved with local initiatives such as ShefFood, the Sheffield Health and Wellbeing Board, and working with apprenticeship programmes. The training also offered to staff around mental health, drink and drug abuse, and domestic abuse demonstrates a similar concern for treating their staff fairly!
A huge congratulations to the Lavang team! To find out more information about their sustainability awards, you can visit their website here.
