We have been working with the same trusted suppliers for many years and we understand the importance of selecting products which achieve high specifications for food sourcing, provenance and sustainability.
Mange is the first UK event-caterer to achieve Marine and Aquaculture Council Stewardship certification, with approval as a fully-certified sustainable fish and seafood supplier, enabling clients to be served environmentally-friendly produce at our functions. The MSC and ASC non-governmental organisations are committed to addressing unsustainable fishing and safeguarding future seafood supplies. We also serve fish products with Global G.A.P and RSPCA assured certification, where producers comply with Europe-wide accepted food safety, sustainable production methods, worker and animal welfare standards.
We work closely with fantastic meat suppliers such as Devon Rose and Frank Godfrey, and endeavour to use as much seasonal, British meat as possible. Our suppliers collaborate with farmers to ensure they achieve high welfare standards. We always have free-range options available. We make all our patisserie from scratch at our central kitchen in Clerkenwell. Cheese is from Neal’s Yard Dairy, with a particular focus on regional artisanal producers.
Coffee is roasted in London by The Gentlemen's Baristas and all varieties used have Direct Trade accreditation. Tea is from Tea Pigs, who also have excellent ‘green’ and ethical credentials, and does not contain plastic in its bags or packaging. We use Belu for mineral water who believe in reducing the environmental impact of bottled water and using all profits to fund clean water projects. Liberty, who supply our fantastic wine list, are carbon-neutral and we recycle virtually all bottles, plastic, cans, tins and cardboard. Half our vehicle fleet is currently electric and we plan to have all our vans running either hybrid or electric by 2020.
Mange is proud to be a London Living Wage employer. The rates are calculated annually by the Resolution Foundation and overseen by the Living Wage Commission, based on the best available evidence about living standards in London and the UK.
