The Foodism 100 is back for 2020: it's time to nominate your venue or business

Our annual celebration is back for its third year, ready to celebrate the hundreds of venues and businesses effecting positive change in the city's food and drink scene. Want to be involved? Here's how to nominate

So yeah, you've probably guessed by now that we're pretty into our food and drink. And not just any food and drink – our favourite kind is the grub that has real the potential to effect positive change.

So, when team Foodism began cooking up a way to reward the very venues and businesses that make London so special, we could think of nothing better than to focus on the businesses that not only serve great food and drink, but are doing good things with their businesses, too. The previous two years of Foodism 100, and the awards nights, brought together some of London's most incredible food and drink venues and businesses. This year's set to be bigger and better.

From the best restaurants with a sustainable edge to the cafés who are helping coffee farmers earn a fair wage, the social enterprises giving people a much-needed second chance and the street-food traders changing the way fast food impacts the environment, these awards represent the cream of the crop in London's sustainable and ethical food and drink scene.
