Campaign group Sustain gave Bouremouth and Pool the title after businesses and organizations across the spectrum from hospitals and primary schools to restaurants, hotels, leisure centers, theatres and workplace restaurants signed up to the scheme.


The accolade is credited with helping to inspire Harrison Catering Services, one of the UK’s top education and workplace caterers, with taking the Fish Cities pledge, after their Poole-based customer, Jordans and Ryvita Company, signed up.


The Sustainable Fish Cities scheme is led by Sustain and is part of a wider campaign for sustainable procurement led by Sustainable Food Cities – a programme co-ordinated by Sustain, Food Matters, and the Soil Association.
