Mazda Real Challengers delves into the lives of 10 people who have cast convention aside to achieve incredible results. One of these 10 is ..
Thomasina Miers, co-founder of Wahaca, fighter against food waste and 2005 Masterchef winner. The first Wahaca opened in 2007, bringing fresh, authentic Mexican food to London. The innovation does not stop with the cuisine; Wahaca restaurants are achieving up to 92% recycling rates. Wahaca was voted sustainable restaurant group of the year in 2012 and 2013.
Thomasina, along with Tristram Stuart & Feeding the 5000, Stepney City Farm and Wahaca, launched The Pig Idea, an initiative to feed food waste to pigs. Did you know that feeding food waste to pigs was a wartime legal obligation? Did you know 50 million tonnes of food waste are thrown out every year? Slow Food London proudly supports this campaign.
