To help with your 100 words on why Petersham should win;
PETERSHAM & SLOW FOOD: “Our sourcing ethos inspires our chefs who are respectful of the produce they work with and appreciate its exceptional quality and taste. In turn the small farmers and artisan producers who grow or produce these ingredients benefit from our support – a virtuous circle best espoused by the international Slow Food movement.
As a member of the Slow Food Supporters Scheme, Petersham Nurseries is able to demonstrate its commitment to good, clean and fair ingredients. ‘Good’ describes the quality and taste of the food you are eating; ‘clean’ refers to the standard of production and consumption without damage to the environment, animal welfare or our health; and ‘fair’ ensures that the farmer, cheese maker, fisherman (or fisherwoman), hunter or baker, is respected, remunerated appropriately and able to live with dignity. This is an ethos that we uphold throughout our organisation and across all business functions from the sourcing of our seeds and the selection within our shops, to the quality of the food leaving the kitchen.”
