FOOD PARTNERS & SOURCING

Our selection of partners has been guided by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Chef’s Manifesto (a practical guide that details simple steps chefs can take to deliver a better food system for all) and the Social Gastronomy Movement (an initiative to address social inequality, fight hunger, and improve nutritional education). All of our partners have been specifically chosen because of their extraordinary quality and because they are part of an effort to generate solutions.
