A bit more on Foodchain

Foodchain is working to build an incredible network of suppliers and restaurants, making sure that the food that arrives on your plate is not only the best quality available, but also has incredible provenance and travels on a low-impact journey. On top of that, they run Feast Fairly, a heavenly foodie idea that sees produce unwanted by the big conglomerates arriving on menus prepared by some of the most innovative chefs.
