Food & industry news ECO-CHEF IS AN EARTH HOUR HERO >> An eco-chef and food writer from London has won recognition at a prestigious UK environmental awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament. Tom Hunt, 36, was named as one of the UK’s most inspiring environmentalists at the WWF Earth Hour Hero awards. As the eco-friendly chef behind the award-winning Poco restaurants in London and Bristol, Tom operates his kitchens following a commitment to place people and the planet at the same level as profit. He believes the ethics of how we grow, source, harvest and/or kill our food is as important as than the way it tastes. However, it’s the 20 million tonnes of annual food wastage that exists within our society Tom finds inexcusable, and so he co-founded the Forgotten Feast, which creates pop-up restaurants that create menus using unwanted food. This wastage can take the form of fresh fish discarded into the sea, unusual cuts of meat unused through lack of demand, and the massive fruit and vegetable wastage right down the line from grower to supplier. Tom sources all fresh produce within 100 miles of the restaurant, working and buying directly from community and individual farmers, as well as small artisan producers, whilst Tom and his team recycle and compost everything.
