Further businesses in County Cork and Limerick are presented with Certificates this month
More businesses who have been actively involved in the Savour Food Programme during 2019 were awarded with certificates in recent weeks.
Participating businesses have undertaken waste assessments, made changes to waste segregation, altered menus, trained staff and received consultancy on water and energy use.
Some participants have continued to use compostable take-away food boxes for consumers who would like to bring their leftovers home with them.
Within the programme, plans for 2020 are afoot. A new online tool to support food service businesses nationwide is in development.
