Leading contract caterer Elior provided the hospitality for 240 delegates from 20 countries at the International Fair Trade Towns Conference in Bristol on the 4th and 5th of July. The theme of the conference, rated the ‘best ever’ by many of its delegates, was to explore ‘Fair Trade for Sustainability’ as part of Bristol’s European Green Capital major events programme.

Thanks to its high sustainability credentials, Elior was the caterer of choice for this high-profile international event, being proud winners of two Gold South West Fairtrade Business Awards, a Gold Food for Life Award and a Gold SRA award.

Jenny Foster, Bristol and South West Fairtrade co-ordinator, said: “The Elior team provided us with excellent food and was incredibly helpful and accommodating – nothing was too much trouble and a number of the delegates commented how 'at home' they felt.”
