Boston Tea Party's Three Star SuccessMay 31st, 2014
Boston Tea Party has been recognised as being among the most sustainable restaurant groups in the UK. The 14-strong independent cafe group has been awarded a Three Star rating, the highest possible, by the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA).
Sam Roberts, Managing Director of BTP, said: “We are really pleased to achieve the Two Star SRA rating last year, but it was always our goal to achieve the highest possible standard – Three Stars. We believe that it really matters to our customers where their food comes from and how we run our business. Now, they can come and eat at our cafes and be confident that we are making every effort to operate responsibly.”
The SRA commended BTP for serving free range British meat and eggs and organic milk, using renewable energy, extensive recycling, offering an extensive selection of healthy options and supporting a number of local and national charities.
Mark Linehan, Managing Director of the SRA, said: “It’s businesses like Boston Tea Party that are helping to change the hospitality sector and the UK dining experience. Diners can visit one of the cafes safe in the knowledge that it’s not going to be costing the earth.”
The SRA Sustainability Rating involves restaurants completing a rigorous survey, providing answers and evidence to 65 questions across 14 areas of sustainability. The SRA then assesses the results and rates the restaurants accordingly. The rating was dubbed the Michelin Stars of Sustainability by the Sunday Times, is featured in Giles Coren’s reviews in The Times, Olive magazine’s restaurant reviews as well as in Harden’s and Les Routiers restaurant guides.Tags: Ashley Down, Bishopston, Boston Tea Party, Bristol, Bristol free magazine, community, Gloucester Road, Horfield, local, Redland, St Andrews, voice Back to news
