Quality without compromise from Berlin-Friedrichshain 

All our food and drinks are 100% VEGAN & BIO-certified (GERMAN-ECONOMY-070).

Our catering is free of packaging waste, we use 100% green electricity and gas and we are GLS bank customers. Furthermore, our working conditions are regulated by a collective agreement. This makes our vegan organic catering unique and special.

We are committed to sustainability and transparency in all facets.

When it comes to comparing prices only, the following applies: we offer high quality at a transparent price. A pure price comparison does not go far enough for us, as our focus is on the composition and holistic orientation of the food. If you skimp on the quality of the food and the working conditions, you can push the prices down. For us, those are not acceptable options.

Whether for the company, university, organisation, office, cooking events or a private highlight: We are there for you as a purely vegan organic caterer. We can inspire with our course cuisine from a small celebration to a wedding to large events with several 1000 people. We have a lot of experience in the implementation and accompaniment of all kinds of events and are very happy to assist you with our knowledge. 

We like to say: The inimitable taste of coordinated, fresh organic ingredients is what counts, despite all the diversity. We eat, live and dress vegan ourselves and know what we are talking about and what actually matters. Handmade, 100% organic, 100% vegan and 100%working conditions with collective agreement.

Commitment to sustainability

We combine the challenges of environmental protection, animal ethics and human working conditions into a sustainable overall concept.
