Our story

With more than 40 years combined food service experience - the team have launched & managed restaurants, developed menus for London's leading hotels, taught new aspiring chefs in specialist plant-based & healthy cooking techniques, and more...

We want to give everyone the same freedom of choice and quality dining experience whether they have a specific dietary requirement such as an allergy or intolerance, or are making food choices based on environmental and sustainability factors

Our Founder Julie was inspired to create Sustainable Kitchen Consultants after her own allergies and intolerances meant she struggled to find adequate choice of available dishes in restaurants.  She is driven by a vision for food equality for all.

With Sustainable Kitchen Consultants, her aim is to increase the number of food service businesses that cater well for people with allergies and intolerances, along with flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans.
