Sustainability is the foundation of future growth and we aim to lead our industry by example. We contribute to sustainable development around three thematic areas:People: Promoting safe working conditions and human rightsPlanet: Reducing our impact on environment and climateProfit: Complying with sound business standards
Vegetables and fruits should be the core of our diets for both health and environmental sustainability reasons.
We maximize the variety of fresh produce we menu, aiming for products that embody the best of our region and season whenever local climates allow.
We prefer to buy local produce through contracted distributors, rather than farmer-direct. This allows everyone to do what they do best - farming, cooking, distributing –rather than wear additional hats.
We require distributors to help us certify farmers to meet guidelines for agricultural sustainability (supporting bio-diversity, water conservation, integrated pest management) and fair labor standards.
