A new street food project championing sustainable and organic food is set to bring three cubes to the streets of Wandsworth, south London.
StreetCube, developed by Olivier Blanc – son of Raymond Blanc - has pledged to champion a sustainable food ethos serving organic, seasonal ingredients sourced within a 100-mile radius.
The three cubes will be installed on the piazza in front of Southside Shopping precinct and are planned to begin serving food in spring.
Blanc said: “StreetCube aims to deliver fresh, well-cooked, sustainable street gastronomy, prepared and cooked by independent chefs, who use organic, local, seasonal ingredients sourced within a 100-mile radius. StreetCube supports and engages with local growing charities, organic suppliers and even foragers to help maintain exciting and delicious seasonal and local specialties with a global flair and style.”
He added: “Currently, we import more than 70% of all our food from overseas, which contributes to rising CO2 levels, but less than 1% is organic, what’s worse is we throw 60% of it away.”
Three independent vendors are being sought to take over the cubes and sign up to the StreetCube ethos.
