Hotpoint opens the doors to its Fresh Thinking pop-up café

In Industry News On

The Hotpoint Fresh Thinking for Forgotten Food pop-up café, located in East London, opened its doors to consumers on Tuesday October 9, serving dishes that have been inspired by the most commonly wasted food in the UK.

The pop-up café marks the finale of the Hotpoint Fresh Thinking Roadshow and the Fresh Thinking Recipe Challenge, which has been encouraging consumers to think differently about their food. Each dish served at the pop-up café is based on recipes that have been inspired by the competition, which saw consumers across the UK submit their favourite recipes using the top ten wasted foods in the UK.

Wherever possible, the dishes served at the pop-up café are made up of surplus ingredients that have been sourced from local suppliers. Dishes incorporate foods such as bread, eggs, fresh vegetables and leftovers, which are some of the nation’s top wasted ingredients.

The Hotpoint Fresh Thinking pop-up café operates on a ‘pay-as-you-feel’ basis with the proceeds being donated to FoodCycle, a charity that works to combat food waste, food poverty and loneliness across the country.

Inspired by Hotpoint’s Day-1 refrigeration technology, the Fresh Thinking for Forgotten Food initiative encourages consumers to make more mindful food decisions in an effort to reduce domestic food waste. Day-1 encompasses a series of technologies, such as precision temperature control, Active Oxygen technology and an innovative 3in1 Zone, which Hotpoint says keeps food fresh for longer.

Hotpoint head of brand Jennifer Taylor commented: “Hotpoint has been on a mission to get the UK to think differently about leftovers, and get creative with the contents in their fridge and cupboards. People from all over the country have submitted some brilliant recipes based on the top 10 wasted foods and we’re thrilled to be serving a handful of these in our Fresh Thinking Café.”

Hotpoint brand ambassador Jamie Oliver added: “Good food is a beautiful thing, it brings people together, it can cheer you up, and it can give you all the goodness you need to fuel your day – which is why me and the guys at Hotpoint don’t think any of it should be wasted! Together with Hotpoint’s waste-savvy equipment, I want to show everyone how easy it is to cut unnecessary waste in the kitchen, and dish up delicious food at the same time.”
