We’re taking an exciting step into the future of food as the headline sponsor of FOOD: Bigger than the Plate, a landmark exhibition at London’s V&A Museum this summer.
The exhibition explores how individuals, communities and organisations are re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food. Taking visitors on a sensory journey through the food cycle from compost to table, FOOD: Bigger than the Plate wants to spark discussion and debate about how our choices can lead to a more sustainable food future.
Artists and designers have worked with chefs, farmers, scientists and local communities to bring together over 70 unexpected and playful projects – from edible water, cheese made from human bacteria to a live mushroom installation growing in the gallery. Our experienced teams will be working alongside the V&A and Benugo to help bring these to life, as well as catering several events around the launch.
Alastair Storey, Chairman of BaxterStorey said: “We are proud to be involved in such an important exhibition. Exploring sustainable and innovative food solutions has never been more relevant. As an organisation that serves millions of meals every single day we are very aware of our impact on the food chain and pride ourselves in our forward-thinking sustainability agenda. We look forward to getting involved and being inspired by the exhibition”.
Catherine Flood, co-curator of FOOD: Bigger than the Plate at the V&A, comments: “BaxterStorey’s commitment to embracing innovative food development and creating a more sustainable catering business makes it a perfect partner for this exhibition. We’re delighted to be working together with them to bring elements of the exhibition to life for our audiences”.
