In our daily operations & activities, we strive to burden the environment as little as possible and to minimize all the food waste. We always use ingredients from start to finish: bread left over from lunch is made into croutons, broccoli stalks are used in puree soups, and the left over from vegetables have been given to small farms we know to feed animals. Used cooking oil is collected and passed on so that biofuel can be produced from it. In addition to bio and mixed waste, we also recycle plastics, glass, cardboard and metals separately.

All of our food is prepared from fresh ingredients on site, and taking into account the harvest seasons. In our kitchen, the electrical appliances are not turned on for nothing and the water is not drained except when necessary. All the detergents we use are nature-friendly and our work clothes are organic cotton.
