Lime Venue Portfolio launches carbon labelled menus

Carbon Labelling

As part of Lime Venue Portfolio’s Meetings for Change initiative, the carbon footprint of every dish served at many of its venues will be displayed.

Carbon labelling follows in the footsteps of calorie labelling and represents the latest move by the brand to show transparent information about the food it serves. This next stage of Meetings for Change was officially launched at The Meetings Show at ExCeL London on 29-30 June. 

The ambition of this initiative is to put the power into the hands of organisers and delegates to make sustainable choices while at events.

Lime Venue Portfolio, in partnership with its catering partner Levy UK+I, is also working with carbon labelling experts Klimato to ensure regulated and transparent signage. Klimato works across the food industry to provide up-to-date intelligence, built around food sourcing, to ensure consumers are clear on the carbon footprint of the meals they eat.

“This is about values, from our commitment to sustainability, working with accredited and credible partners, and leading the way with important subjects like carbon labelling,” said Lime Venue Portfolio sales director, Jo Austin. 

“Add this to our thought leadership around mental health and it’s a busy but rewarding show for us.”

The brand also contributed to other areas of The Meetings Show, with head of proactive sales, Kerry Wright, sharing insight on mental health in a seminar: ‘Is the Industry suffering from PTSD?’ Wright is recently qualified as a Mental Health First Aid specialist.

Lime Venue Portfolio also co-hosted the Delegate Wrangler’s Social at 4pm on day one (29th) of the The Meetings Show, alongside one of its member venues, ExCeL London. As part of the gathering, the brand showcased its Levy burger, which reduces carbon footprint by replacing carbon-heavy meat with carbon-reducing mushrooms.
