Sustainability enewsflash - ethical caterers wanted!

Wanted: Ethical Caterers

In June 2010, Byron Shire Council resolved to adopt an Ethical Catering Policy to recognise the importance of ethically and sustainably produced foods to the nutritional health and general wellbeing of our community, the local economy and the wider environment. 

The Ethical Catering register was created to support the Ethical Catering policy which gives preference to local, seasonally-available, certified organic, cruelty-free and fair trade produce and also aims to promote sustainable agriculture by supporting local farmers across Byron Shire.

Council will soon be updating its register of Ethical Caterers and will be inviting suitably qualified local caterers to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for Ethical Catering.

A workshop will be held on Wednesday 26 October from 11-12pm at Byron Shire Council to explain the application process. We warmly encourage our fantastic local caterers to come along and learn more about how you can become part of our register.

To register for the workshop or for more information please contact Sandi Middleton at Byron Shire Council on 02 6626 7305, email
