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.


Six insightful, food for thought reports available to download! Use them to take a proactive step to minimise the industry’s negative impacts on the planet, whilst enriching the event catering experience. COLLECT THEM ALL.

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?

Plant Menu

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?


Future Food

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?
