Food & Mental Health
You are what you eat? But food isn’t just about physical health, it’s about mental health as well. So, in an industry where mental health is increasingly being scrutinised, how can food control mood? Read our latest Beyond Food Report to find out more.
Welcome to Beyond Food
Over the coming months Lime Venue Portfolio, in association with BCD Meetings & Events are exploring the world of food and drink in meetings, conference and events.
Food; it’s a big subject... One that needs time, discussion, evidence and opinion. This report goes beyond food, to look at how what we feed our delegations can both impact the planet, and also individual’s health and happiness. A far-ranging research and exploration piece split over six sections; all dealing with the crucial place food takes within the events industry; from sustainability and wastage, to mental and physical health. Looking at the present, and forward into the future; this is Beyond Food by Lime Venue Portfolio and BCD Meeting & Events.

Food Wastage and the Fear of Running Out
Food waste isn’t about ignorance, it’s about changing behaviour. Through the prism of our fear of running out, how can we regulate the wasteful habits of the events industry?
The way people eat at events is changing. As populations around the world begin to understand the impact of their eating habits we delve deeper into the emergence of plant menus in the events industry.
Food & Mental Health
Eating well at an event can sometimes be difficult, but is essential in keeping delegates’ minds active. The links between food and wellbeing are intrinsic, but how much do we need to think about brain food at events?
The Blue Planet effect
BAFTA award-winning BBC One television series Blue Planet II, presented by Sir David Attenborough, sparked the war on plastics, but what can we do as an event industry to minimise our effect?
Building a Sustainable DDR
The Day Delegate Rate (DDR) charged by a venue will usually include meeting room hire, refreshment breaks, lunch and conference equipment but as delegates become more aware of sustainability in their personal lives, we will see this effect the event the traditional DDR?
Delegates growing demand for unique venues, unique food, new flavour experiences, greater transparency and healthier products are destined to continue to shape food at events, but what does the future of event food look like? Will predicted food trends be fab or fantastic?
