The Food


Locavore (local-eater) lives by the principles of the 100-mile diet. That is wherever possible, all produce is sourced from within a 160 km radius.

When in doubt we follow these principles:

If not local, family farmed; if not family farmed, organic; if not organic then fair-trade.
 

Saving:                 100 000 000 food km per year
Supporting:           250 suppliers and an estimated 1000 family businesses
Instilling:               regional pride and awareness
living:                    community spirit
