Restaurant Associates proudly hosted the latest edition of our "Future of Hospitality" Thought Leadership event in the vibrant heart of Southwark. The theme of the evening - Sustainability and why it matters.
Our Managing Director, Matt Thomas, welcomed our esteemed guests and shed light on our journey towards a more sustainable future. We've been hard at work, reducing food waste, electrifying our entire car fleet, embracing a plant-forward ethos in our menus, and striving to reduce our environmental footprint.
