Who was involved?

Every year over 1.3 billion tonnes of edible food and drink worldwide is thrown away.

Plate up for Glasgow put food waste on the map, by encouraging venues across the city to offer at least one low waste dining option for the duration of the campaign (Oct 12 – Nov 12), turning food surplus into delicious meals or drinks.

Many of these venues have been inspired by the campaign to keep their low-waste dishes on the menu or create new dishes with our ethos in mind. Why not take a look at who was involved and give these food waste pioneers a visit?

Please bear in mind...

*Dining options showcased on the Plate up for Glasgow site are examples only, and are subject to change.

Please bear in mind that as a food waste campaign that focuses on using surplus ingredients, dining options may change regularly. We think this is something that should be celebrated – although it does make it difficult to know in advance which options you’ll be able to choose  from, or their availability. So when it’s gone, it’s gone. And when it’s gone, there’s no waste!

Participating venues are responsible for showcasing their own daily dining offers throughout the campaign period. We would strongly recommend contacting them directly to confirm details and availability before your visit to avoid disappointment.

Due to the nature of this campaign, catering for all dietary requirements may be limited. However, we have done our best to cater for as many needs as we can.

And of course, dining options are never created with ingredients that are past their sell-by date. “Leftover” food is just food that is surplus or unsold, which unfortunately happens all too often along food supply chains.
