Improved Sustainability in Your Bar

Are we taking the most appropriate steps to use ingredients in a sustainable manner in our bars? And what would we do if the ingredients we hold so dear simply weren't around anymore? Join a bartender, a botanist and two botanical buyers as they discuss the steps to controlling the ingredient chain from producer to consumer, and learn about practical steps that can encourage us to use our ingredients better. The seminar will include links and a platform that helps engage bartenders and owners in a way of making real changes in their bars, and join the debate on whether we can, and should be controlling more of our input into our ingredients.
