The ‘Reading Borough Council’s 2015 gold Alfresco Award’ was given to this new firm ‘the Black Pig Catering’ after it emerged with top marks.
Black Pig Catering Company with its food truck overwhelmed the council which scrutinizes food outlets at the Reading Festival and provides them a food hygiene evaluation, after attaining top marks in food safety at its foremost arena pitch.

This new catering firm was founded by Adam Blackett in 2015 and the festival was only its 2nd show of 2015. And as a further compensation, Black Pig wins a free pitch at the upper year’s Reading Festival.

This isn’t an easy one to win though, as a firm must get a maximum rating of five in the inspection and be eligible for the award. And catering firms must also pass strict criteria, which include good ethics of hygiene, health and safety and a respect for environmental matters.

To resolve which caterer wins a gold, silver or bronze, the council put forward 13 of the 120 firms qualifying for the award for consideration by event organizers ‘Festival Republic’.

The organizers judge standards such as safety, how staff transport to and fro the festival, and if they use eco-friendly or green cleaning products and how they proceed in recycling waste.

The second place for a silver award was given to Gilcombe Farm, a firm run by Andy and Lisa Portch, providing Hog Roasts in the arena. With this position, it is authorized to a 20% discount next year.

The third place for a bronze award was offered to ‘The Teabag Chiuahua catering company’ which specializes in Mexican food. And with this position as well, it is entitled to 10% off next year.

For the last sixteen years, the most hygienic food suppliers have been giving Alfresco Awards – thanks to this successful and popular scheme run by the council in Readings.

People who find their way to this festival simply want to have fun, and also be afforded the familiarity that they are purchasing food that is of high quality, hygienic and up to standard.

The awards reveal the quality of catering and absolute option of food on offer as with regards to excellent standard of service.
