2019 Foodism 100 Winners Announced!
The awards honouring London’s good food organisations held their second ever ceremony on 24th January at Greenwich Market.
The Foodism 100 awards have become a hugely exciting event for London’s food scene, as a celebration of the venues and businesses creating positive change for the city, from the environmental, to the social - and this year was no different.
We were especially excited to see the awarding of ‘Best Social Enterprise,’ which went to the fantastic Luminary Bakery, a bakery dedicated to offering opportunities to women facing a social and economic disadvantage, and whose inspiring founder, Alice Williams, has featured in our Roots to Work series.
‘Best bar’ was swiped up by Hoxton’s CUB, for their unique, sustainable cocktails. Their overarching dedication to waste reduction, carefully sourced underused vegetable-focussed dishes, and elegant dining area meant they also garnered a special category all their own in our special Veganuary edition of Around Town.
Huge congratulations to the category winners, and all of the rest of this year's Foodism 100 (who include former 'Eel editor Chris Young in the Positive Change Hero category for his work running the Real Bread Campaign), for their ongoing contributions to a better, more sustainable, and open food system for London.
