The Ickworth, Sutton Hoo and Dunwich Heath sites have all earned a ‘Bronze Food for Life Served Here’ award following an annual inspection.

Paul Massingham, the National Trust’s Catering Consultant for the East of England said: “We’re delighted to have achieved the Bronze Food for Life Served Here Award at three outlets in Suffolk.

“We pride ourselves on creating delicious food that has been grown, reared and prepared with land, nature and, of course, our customers in mind.”

Martin Sawyer, Chief Executive of Soil Association Certification, added: “The Bronze Food for Life Served Here Award is an excellent achievement which recognises the vital role that fresh, local and honest meals play in healthy, planet-friendly menus, especially for large-scale catering.”
