Welcome to the Hospitality Toolkit - helping you to get prepped.

This toolkit has been created with you in mind - our city’s hospitality and food service sector businesses, looking to reduce food waste, enhance sustainable practices and drive profitability.

We put this guide together in collaboration with some of Glasgow’s most loved restaurateurs, chefs and industry leaders who best understand key food waste challenges.

The purpose of this toolkit is to share tips, advice, and resources, making it as simple as possible for venues to create their very own low-waste dish or drink. In doing so, our ambition is to create a collaborative movement where businesses can learn together to improve their sustainability – and ultimately become more profitable in the process.

We’ve tried to keep this toolkit concise. In it you’ll find:

  • The four parameters we challenged businesses to adopt when creating their Plate up for Glasgow 'Food Hero’ dish or drink.
  • Plenty of inspirational examples to help get you started in creating your own low-waste dishes or drinks.
  • Resources to help measure and target food waste
  • Inspiring restaurants who have successfully made it their mission to tackle food waste

Missed your chance to take part in Plate up for Glasgow?

Don’t panic! While the campaign might have officially ended, we’re still keen to encourage and support businesses in their long-term food waste reduction ambitions.

Why not check out the Hospitality Toolkit and challenge your team to come up with your own waste saving offering for your menu?
