FCSI’s Sustainability Lowdown podcast – series four, episode one

Kicking off the new series of the Sustainability Lowdown podcast, chef Albert Franch Sunyer tells Tina Nielsen about the challenges of building his restaurant Nolla with a zero-waste approach

FCSI’s Sustainability Lowdown podcast series speaks to the people leading the way in sustainable foodservice. We also seek to examine the impact on a restaurant or foodservice operation to adapt sustainable practices.

In episode one of season four, Albert Franch-Sunyer, the chef and co-founder of restaurant Nolla in Helsinki, Finland tells Tina Nielsen about his experience establishing a genuinely zero-waste restaurant.

“Looking at the restaurant holistically, at the end of the day no waste should be produced, so nothing that can be used for something should be left,” he says. “Zero waste means zero waste. That is the goal. We fail every single day but slowly we are getting very close.”

It is the right thing to do to minimise resource use for future generations, customers demand it and it makes good business sense. The actions, tips and best practice outlined in this report should dramatically reduce your waste output whilst adding a healthy boost to your bottom line. It is time to take another look at the catering environment to ensure your kitchen is designed with waste in mind. For more information please visit the Meiko website at meiko-global.com.
