Businesses in central London are being encouraged to back a pop-up “Midtown Community Kitchen” that has been launched to provide locally-produced food to workers in the area.
The initiative has been started for the business district of midtown, representing 570 companies in Bloomsbury, Holborn and St Giles. The kitchen has been set up at 56 New Oxford Street.
If the two-month pilot is a success, it will evolve into a programme providing employees in the area with packaged, safely sourced “ready meals” later this year.
Tass Mavrogordato, CEO of inmidtown, said: “Healthy employees are productive employees and we collectively want to ensure that staff in Midtown know what they are eating and where it has come from. As questions are asked about the quality of food supplies across Europe, we are highlighting how consumers can get quality food within walking distance of their desks – by supporting local butchers, bakers and flatbread wrap makers in their local community.
