The National Wine Centre has embarked on a "green" accreditation scheme allowing us the opportunity to receive recognition in taking positive steps to proactively manage our environmental impacts. Our environmental scheme is based on the international standard for environmental best practice (ISO14001:2004).
Our formal environmental policy statement, along with our environmental objectives and targets are the first steps in rolling out our environmental improvement and action plan.
Being one of the State’s most awarded catering and function centres, recycling food waste responsibly is high on the list of priorities for the National Wine Centre.
Since introducing organics bins a year ago, the NWC has diverted more than 10 tonnes of food waste from landfill.
Sophie Harper (Operations Manager) said “Executive Chef, Philip Pope, and the chefs have been amazing and have really driven this from the kitchen.
In a real ‘closing of the loop’, the National Wine Centre now composts their vineyards with organic compost made from their own food waste!
Apprentice Kitchen Garden
Spring has officially sprung here at the National Wine Centre with the planting of our new herb/ vegetable kitchen garden.
The idea of planting the herbs is part of the centre’s ongoing commitment to improve environmental sustainability and reduce food miles, our “Green Promise”
Our eager team of Apprentices will oversee the garden and use the produce in our kitchen recipes.
