• Sustainable Restaurant Association announces entry into U.S.

The United Kingdom-based Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), has launched a global sustainability rating system available to any restaurant in the world.

Global expansion of the SRA rating aims to create an international standard for sustainability in the professional food community.

According to the SRA, a number of restaurant groups have already committed to achieving the SRA Rating, including some in the U.S.

The SRA rating system, an online questionnaire to gauge a restaurants' commitment to three tenets of sustainability — Society, Environment and Sourcing — has been used in the UK since 2009. Restaurants that score 50-59 percent receive One Star, 60-69 percent Two Stars and 70 percent and above Three Stars.

"This is the birth of an international common language of restaurant sustainability," said Raymond Blanc, president of the SRA and chef patron of Le Manoir.
