Background Information: Following the plant-based food motion raised at full Council on 26 May 2022, the Council resolved to promote and normalise plant-based food by transitioning to provide more plant-based food options at Council meetings and events where food is served, due to the greenhouse gas emissions of meat and dairy production. As part of this, it was agreed that officers would explore a variety of catering options and bring a costed report of fully plant-based catering options for Civic events to a future Environment and Community Scrutiny Committee.
