Waste Not, Want Not!

Waste Not, Want Not!

On 26th September, the Party Ingredients team hosted a Masterclass in Sustainable Entertaining in partnership with Urban Food Fortnight.

The aim of the class was to teach attendees how to minimise their food waste at home by creating a variety of delicacies where one or more of the ingredients used would be considered to many as 'surplus' or 'waste' - many of the canapes tried were inspired by our very own sales & operations teams! We also demonstrated how items foraged by PI staff were made into syrups & cordials, and blended with locally sourced spirits to serve delicious cocktails. Our foraging guide was sent to all guests after the class & we're looking forward to seeing the fruits of their labour very soon!

In addition to the delicious food & drinks on offer, guests networked with some of the companies that Party Ingredients works directly with to understand more about what we do daily to keep ourselves sustainable. Many thanks to London Living Wage, Plan Zheroes, Beyond Food Foundation and Heart of the City for attending & getting involved.
