Our Food Waste Pledge

Brasserie Zédel are proud to be part of The Crown Estate's pledge to reduce food waste by 25% by May 2020.


Did you know that every year, an estimated one third of all food produced around the world is wasted. What’s more, the UK food service industry currently wastes an average of one in six meals, which is enough to fill the Shard almost 11 times every year. It’s of no surprise then that ‘food waste reduction’ is identified by the United Nation as one of its Sustainable Development Goals.

Therefore, inspired by the United Nation’s goal to halve food waste by 2030, The Crown Estate in London have also made a pioneering pledge, of which Brasserie Zédel are very proud to be a part of.

Leading the way on cutting food waste, helping to reduce our environmental impact and ensuring our destinations remain sustainable, we are now committed to reducing our food waste by 25% by May 2020.

We join 10 other restaurants around Regent Street and St James – Angela Hartnett’s Café Murano; Frescobaldi; Hawksmoor Air Street; Hotel Café Royal; ikoyi; Ralph’s Coffee and Bar; Scully; Sketch; Stem and Tibits – in this commitment.

Jane Wakiwaka, Sustainability Manager at Crown Estate commented; “At the Crown Estate we take a long-term view in everything we do. We champion sustainable practices across our business and in partnership with our restauranteurs and retailers. The Regent Street and St James Food Waste Pledge is the next exciting step. We are proud to spearhead an initiative that will unite many of the fantastic restaurants on our portfolio and reduce food waste for a more sustainable future.”
