Environmental Responsibility

At the RNCM, we’d like the quality of our food and drinks to leave a lasting impression on you – not on the environment.

We take steps to ensure that we’re operating in a sustainable, environmentally responsible way in everything that we do at Brodsky, in our Café, Concert Bar and at events.

Food and Drink

  • Our coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified.
  • Our sugar and hot chocolate is Fairtrade.
  • Our eggs are free range.
  • Our soup is homemade from fresh ingredients daily.
  • Our sandwiches, paninis and toasties are all made in-house.
  • Our fish and seafood is Marine Conservation Society approved.

Supporting Local Businesses

  • We shop locally where possible to support family businesses.
  • We use a small family-run butchers, established in 1905, whose produce is red tractor approved.
  • We use two local bakers for bread which is freshly delivered daily.

Our People

  • A team of six professional chefs produce food for Brodsky, the Café and all of our events.
  • Our apprenticeship programme has been running for 10 years, training professional chefs for work in the industry.

Reducing Waste

  • Look out for our to-go mugs and water bottles, which will be on sale from September. If you use your to-go mug to buy hot drinks or soup you’ll save 20p each time.
  • Our plastic salad packaging is made from recycled plastic and is 100% recyclable.
  • We’ll soon be going straw-free at the Concert Bar and we’ve moved to a 100% recyclable coffee cup.
  • We have signed up to Andy Burnham’s Plastic Free Greater Manchester pledge to remove single use plastic by 2020.
