Worcestershire venue one of few to be recognised nationally for its sustainability work.

Holland House, near Pershore, has been shortlisted for a top new national award to celebrate sustainability and environmental excellence in the food service industry. The Worcestershire venue, run as a retreat and conference centre, prides itself on the work it has done to reduce its impact on the environment and is a member of the Sustainable Restaurant Association. This new award, the Footprint Award, aims to recognise businesses that are making a difference to sustainability and their environmental impact. The gardens play a big role in this by not only being run on organic principles but also by supplying the catering manager with fresh produce as required. This is never an easy task, but under the management of Patrick Swan the garden at Holland House is now singing from the same hymn sheet as the kitchen with the aim to reduce food miles from miles, to just a few metres!
