sustainable business practices in Gastronomy

The future of food can only be sustainable, but it not only means the aspect of sourcing locally and how to avoid food waste, but it goes further like practicing our own mindfulness in a stressful field and how we can educate our guests for a sustainable tomorrow. On a panel we’ll discuss the aspects of sustainability and the great chances for our own business.

We are looking forward to our guests
