Sustainable Summer: How CCSL is Leading the Way in Eco-Friendly Catering


As summer arrives, bringing with it a season of outdoor events, company gatherings, and vibrant festivities, there’s no better time to focus on sustainability in catering. At CCSL, we are committed to leading the way in eco-friendly catering practices that not only delight our clients but also protect the environment. Here’s how we are making a positive impact this summer and beyond.


Reducing Food Waste

Food waste is a significant issue in the catering industry, but at CCSL, we take proactive steps to minimise it. Our strategies include:

  • Efficient Inventory Management: By carefully planning our inventory, we ensure that we order just the right amount of ingredients, reducing the likelihood of excess.

  • Portion Control: We use precise portioning to avoid over-serving and to ensure that our meals are both satisfying and waste-conscious.

  • Surplus Donations: Any surplus food that meets safety standards is donated to local charities, helping those in need and preventing waste.

  • Food Waste Charter Membership: As proud members of the Food Waste Charter, we commit to its principles and programmes. This includes reducing food waste through preventive measures, staff training, and continuous improvement. Our involvement with the Charter enhances our ability to manage waste effectively and sustainably.


Eco-Friendly Packaging

In our effort to reduce single-use plastics, we have partnered with 2GoCup and 2GoBowls. These partnerships enable us to provide reusable and recyclable packaging options that significantly lower our environmental footprint. Here’s how:

  • Reusable Options: 2GoCup and 2GoBowls offer innovative reusable packaging solutions, encouraging a cycle of use, return, and reuse.

  • Recyclable Materials: When reusables aren’t possible, we opt for recyclable materials that are kinder to the environment.


Local Sourcing

Sourcing ingredients locally is another cornerstone of our sustainability strategy. By partnering with local farmers and suppliers, we:

  • Support Local Economy: We bolster the local economy, providing business to farmers and producers in our community.

  • Reduce Carbon Footprint: Shorter transportation distances mean lower emissions, contributing to a healthier planet.

  • Fresh, Seasonal Ingredients: Our clients enjoy the freshest, highest-quality ingredients that are in season and full of flavour.


Summer Menu Spotlight

To celebrate the summer, we’ve curated a special menu featuring locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. From crisp, fresh salads to hearty, grill-ready vegetables and sustainably sourced proteins, our summer menu is designed to delight the palate while honouring our commitment to sustainability.


Client Success Stories

Our sustainable practices have already made a positive impact on many of our clients. Here are a few success stories:

  • Corporate Picnics: For a recent corporate BBQ, we provided a fully sustainable menu featuring biodegradable plates and utensils, and zero food waste. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with many attendees praising the eco-friendly approach.

  • Team Building Events: We organised a team-building event for a client company where employees participated in a cooking challenge using only locally sourced ingredients. This not only fostered team spirit but also raised awareness about the importance of local sourcing.


At CCSL, we believe that every meal can make a difference. By choosing us for your catering needs, you’re not just getting exceptional food and service—you’re also supporting sustainable practices that benefit the environment and the community.
