Caroline Bennett, Ambassador
Caroline Bennett, GreenCook food waste ambassador
Caroline Bennett is a member of the GreenCook Ambassadors network of food professionals, coordinated in the UK by Ethical Eats. The Ambassadors have a wealth of knowledge about the industry and how to create more sustainable dishes and help curb food waste. They explore in practice some of the findings of the tools and research developed by the transnational GreenCook project.
Caroline is the Managing Director of Moshi Moshi, the leading sustainable sushi restaurant chain. In 2005, Caroline received The Green Apple Award for sourcing sustainable fish.
Caroline is a leading light on sustainable fish in the UK, promoting the cause of sustainable fish through her work and campaigning. She is a Seafood Champion for the Seafood Choices Alliance, co-founder ofPisces Responsible Fish Restaurants and has contributed to development of Sustain'sSustainable Fish City campaign.
Moshi Moshi works with traditional Japanese principles in mind. All ingredients must be extremely fresh, seasonal and locally sourced where possible. This has led to working with Cornish fisherman Chris Bean who gets fish from boat to plate in 24 hours. She is passionate about sustainable fish stocks and helping others become more aware of the impact of their sourcing.

One of the iconic recipes at Moshi Moshi uses prawn heads that would otherwise go to waste, as a delicious ingredient in deep-fried snacks. Promoting such innovative approaches to using precious food ingredients wisely makes Caroline a highly valued GreenCook Food Waste Ambassador.
