Healthy Hospo starts the year with a trio of events collaborating with industry leaders and forward thinking brands and organisations.

Healthy Hospo launches its Mindful Hub to support hospitality professionals during Dry January & beyond, focusing on actionable tools from industry experts on how to improve drinking habits throughout 2023.

“The Mindful Hub is a safe space for hospitality professionals. It reflects what we believe is one of the biggest stigmas in our industry – alcohol misuse. By ensuring we have a good relationship with alcohol, we can maintain our health and professionalism of the industry in the long term’. We believe  important discussions are necessary to raise awareness, educate, and build a healthier community” explains Jason-Candid, Director of Healthy Hospo.

The initiative is supported by a forward-thinking trio of drinks brands who have joined forces to celebrate the On-Trade during the January gap. The complimentary drinks offering will take its focus away from alcohol, instead, cheering to a better year with naturally fermented tea by REAL Drinks, cocktails using UK’s most complex non-alcoholic aperitif, Everleaf and CBD concoctions for every mood, using the exciting range from MEDAHUMAN
– all hosted by the brilliant team at Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone, London.

Doors open on Monday 16th,23rd,and 30th January for hospitality professionals, welcoming front liners, back-of-house, management, and remote working fairies from 1pm to 5pm with a panel discussion of 90 minutes starting from 1.30pm. After 3pm it’s time to socialise, connect, or just enjoy the renowned afternoon treat, without any commitments.

Healthy Hospo has organised half a dozen mindful events since last October and is planning a busy schedule to work closely with brands & organisations throughout 2023, announcing this month a partnership with The World Alcohol-Free Awards, celebrating the growth of the non-alcoholic sector.

‘We all know that hospitality is a profession that puts great physical and mental stress on its staff. Learning how to control alcohol, rather than having it control you, is a key part of combating that. We’re sure that a better appreciation and understanding of all the great alcohol-free drinks that are out there now can really help Healthy Hospo in their mission, and we are absolutely delighted to team up with them over the next year and work together where we can’ shares Chris Losh, Director of the World Alcohol-Free Award.


With a mission to build a healthier, happier hospitality industry, Healthy Hospo is a leading health and well-being training provider supporting the mental and physical health of chefs, bartenders, wait staff, baristas, managers, and anyone that works in, or with, the hospitality industry.

Since their launch four years ago, they have trained and inspired thousands of hospitality professionals around the world to live healthier, happier lives through their pioneering training programs and digital platform, a first for the hospitality industry.

The name pretty much says it all! But, in a nutshell, the World Alcohol-Free Awards is the only drinks competition dedicated solely to drinks of 0.5% ABV and below.

In the World Alcohol-Free Awards, we don’t judge conventional wines, spirits or beers – not even ‘low alcohol’ versions – only products that meet the globally-understood standard of alcohol-free.

And because these products – your products – are different, our competition is different too.

You’ll find more details in our Why Should I Enter page. But essentially, the whole judging process – from the categorisation of the drinks, through judging to the final awards and trophies – is geared around the particular needs of this dynamic and fast-growing category.

No distractions, no compromises, just 100% focus on the world under 0.5% ABV.
