ADUR and Worthing Councils have launched their Eat Out Eat Well initiative for 2015.

Current gold standard Eat Out Eat Well certificate holders, The Ropetackle Café in Shoreham played host to the launch.

Councillor David Simmons, executive member for health & wellbeing at Adur District Council, welcomed current Eat Out Eat Well catering businesses, including Reflections Nursery and Forest School, Discovery Day Nursery both in Worthing and in Shoreham, Frank’s Kitchen and Artisan Café.

Since its successful launch last year, the Eat Out Eat Well in Sussex campaign has awarded 18 gold, silver and bronze certificates to restaurants, cafés and private catering businesses all over the Adur and Worthing district.

These businesses have shown a strong commitment to offering their customers healthier dishes.

Mr Simmons said: “The Ropetackle Café is a perfect example of what the Eat Out Eat Well campaign is trying to achieve. The café is a successful catering business that serves delicious, fresh food and has consistently demonstrated its commitment to offering healthy options, using locally sourced and ethical ingredients. The fact that this café is also solely run by volunteers also deserves special mention.”

Councillor Val Turner, executive member for health & wellbeing at Worthing Borough Council, added that she hoped the event would encourage more businesses to sign up to the scheme.
