The Eat Out Woolworths Sustainability Award acknowledges a restaurant that brings its customers seasonal, local and responsibly produced food, helping the country to move towards a more sustainable food system. In 2016, we announced the first-ever winner, The Table at De Meye in Stellenbosch and in 2017, Camphors at Vergelegen took home the honours, followed by 2018 winner The Werf Restaurant at Boschendal. The 2019 winner will be announced in November.
Eat Out works with several partners to develop robust criteria, covering all aspects of the business, including responsible sourcing, responsible farming, ethical treatment and slaughter of animals, fair labour practices, community impact and energy, water and waste management. The judges include Pavitray Pillay of WWF-SASSI, Sonia Mountford of Eategrity and Karen Welter of Longtable Project.
