How important is sustainability to you – the diner? We want to know!

Here at Harden’s we are conscious that restaurants are striving to become more sustainable and less wasteful (it is estimated waste from the food industry alone costs the UK £5bn a year). Many establishments now source their ingredients locally and from sustainable suppliers, while others have adopted a zero waste policy – recycling, reusing and composting produce. And there are plenty of restaurateurs who don’t stop there, reclaiming furniture and materials for their interiors – sometimes even reclaiming discarded coffee grounds in which to grow mushrooms (Silo, Brighton).

So please take 30 seconds to complete the short questionnaire below. One lucky entrant will win dinner for two, with a bottle of wine, at one of Daylesford Organic’s cafés* – voted Sustainable Restaurant of the Year 2015.


When choosing where and what you eat, do you consider sourcing and environmental issues, more than you did five years ago? Issues include things like sourcing local and seasonal produce, high welfare meat, sustainable fish, water and energy saving and treating staff fairly.

 Much more More The same Less

Have any ethical or sustainable criteria ever been a deciding factor in choosing your dining destination?

 Never Occasionally Frequently

Would you be more likely to choose somewhere to eat based on these factors if restaurants told you more about the provenance of their food and their impact on society and the environment?

 More likely Much more likely The same Less likely

Looking ahead, to 2020, do you think these issues will affect your dining decisions?

 Significantly more than now More than now To the same level as now Less than now

What represents greater value to you – the ethical and sustainable achievements of a restaurant or getting a 10% discount on your meal?
