The Chef Patron of the two Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons and founder of Brasserie Blanc restaurants has always been a champion and campaigner for sustainability and food ethics and we believe he is the perfect chef to continue our mission to help restaurants to be more sustainable and give diners the chance to choose restaurants that match their ethical and environmental standards.

Raymond  Blanc believes that while British cuisine has undergone a transformation and should be proud of its standing among the best in the world, unless diners increase the pressure on restaurants the UK risks missing the chance to become the world leader in sustainability. So, he has written these letters to all you chefs, restaurateurs and diners asking you to join this movement.

By supporting this campaign, whether as someone who owns or works in a restaurant or as someone who eats out in them, you can show the wider industry that there is a demand for ethical and sustainable food and the time is right for change.
