The food system is the single biggest threat to nature today
"This magical, marvellous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy”
“Reconnecting people with food is essential if we want to change the food system and build a future of healthy people and a healthy planet”
Our passion for protecting the planet for future generations includes the environmental impact of the delicious and healthy food we offer our guests. What we eat not only has an impact on our personal health, but also on the health of our planet. Therefore, we like to know exactly where our food comes from. Making the right choices to eat local, fresh produce and thinking about how our food gets to us makes a difference. Low impact on the environment, but high impact on the taste buds!
We work hard to keep our waste to an absolute minimum. Almost all our fruit, vegetables and salads are delivered unpackaged. Our chefs are great at making everything from scratch: tasty homemade granola, baked beans, you name it. This helps us avoid tinned or plastic wrapped products which are often imported from overseas.
We purchase as many freshly grown and locally available products as possible to reduce the miles food travels to our tables. At most of our properties, produce only has to travel a few metres from our own kitchen gardens which are full of homegrown goodies. At Sasaab we have a brood of hens for fresh eggs, and the eggs at Solio are bought from a local orphanage as a sustainable income generating project.
COMPOSTING & RECYCLING
We do our best to dispose of unavoidable waste in a sustainable and ethical way. Compost is created which goes back into our kitchen gardens and the 98% of the other waste is recycled through a social enterprise in Nairobi called Taka Taka Solutions.
