It’s this blend of operational control and culinary freedom that resonates with a genuine passion for food, manifesting in joyous cooking and an inspiring work environment that the judges could see Anglian team members thriving in.

Sustainability ethos

It's ethos of sustainability, from meticulous portion control to comprehensive waste reduction initiatives like composting, not only aligns with environmental awareness but also demonstrates operational efficiency and financial savvy.

This approach has solidified their financial performance, setting them apart as a group that prioritises environmental care as much as fiscal responsibility.
