For the third time this year, METRO Wholesale is organizing the METRO Sustainable Gastronomy Forum and Awards, which will take place a week before the day of sustainable gastronomy, on June 11, at the METRO Culinary Academy in Budaörs.

This time, the forum’s main theme is the macroeconomic environment underlying the sustainable gastronomic shift, with a particular focus on the challenges of meeting different generational expectations. Among others, generational researcher Krisztián Steigervald and gastronomic psychologist Dr. Attila Forgács will help prepare for welcoming future guests, with discussions also covering sustainable hotel industry and socially sustainable hospitality.

This year’s highlight will again be the presentation of the Sustainable Gastronomy Awards in three categories – individual, hospitality venue, and organization. The cost for participating in this eye-opening program, particularly aimed at hospitality and gastronomy professionals, is HUF 13,990 gross, which includes the price of lunch in addition to the professional programs.
