A Hertfordshire restaurant group which recently became the first outside London to be accredited for serving sustainable fish, has been named Sustainable Small Restaurant Group of the Year.

Lussmanns Fish & Grill owner Andrei Lussmann, right, received the award from Raymond Blanc, President of the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), at the recent Sustainable Restaurant Awards.

Andrei Lussmann said: “Winning this award is testament to the ways that we at Lussmanns are making a difference. Food insecurity, dwindling resources and a growing world population are impacting our lives and the time to participate is now.”

Lussmans has branches in Hertford, St Albans and Harpenden and was the first small restaurant group outside London to receive this accreditation.
