Sustainable catering by Coeur Catering
For years, Coeur Catering has prided itself on a sustainable approach, a vision that is woven into the company’s DNA. Since 2018, the caterer has been pouring all these ambitions into a concrete action plan: E-COEUR.
40% of our offerings are resolutely vegetarian. We prefer fish, meat and vegetables of local and organic origins. Chocolate and coffee always come from fair trade. For our (sparkling) wines, we do not call on new world countries to limit the emisse limit. In our assortment we work with a seasonal “catch of the day” rather fish from the North Sea rather than a fixed fish species to avoid as much bycatch as possible. Since 2022, beef has been removed from our standard range.
2022 – what’s next?
Coeur Catering remains committed to sustainable business practices. The vegetarian offering will be 50% by 2022 and is investing in solar panels, green energy and insulation. To this end, Coeur Catering is joining forces with the City of Ghent and UGent, who are providing advice and expertise. We are proud to be part of a select number of caterers who distinguish themselves in this respect.
As a partner and ambassador, we support Go Forest: an NGO that works to combat deforestation and the protection of biodiversity in the fight against climate change. By 2030, Coeur Catering wants to work with Go Forest to plant at least 20,000 trees in the Peruvian Amazon forest.
Zero Food Waste
With its years of expertise, Coeur Catering aims to combat food waste in all areas. Thus, the purchase of products meets real demand. Thanks to optimization of rapid cooling and sustainable storage methods, preparations are given a long, second life. Surpluses are creatively reprocessed or donated to underprivileged families in collaboration with Foodsavers of Ghent. In STAMcafé we work together with Too Good To Go to get the last leftovers to the right man or woman.
Whenever and wherever possible, Coeur Catering delivers and travels by bicycle, in collaboration with Ghent-based Cargo Velo. You can repair your bicycle as an employee on site in the workshop. Our own fleet of vehicles is being rejuvenated with a view to reducing consumption and Coeur Catering is anticipating the electric car by installing electric charging stations in the fall of 2022 powered by our own solar panels.
From May plastic-free to 365 days plastic-aware
Coeur Catering wants to limit plastic and offer smart alternatives. PET is giving way to sustainable solutions: glass bottles, SodaStream or simply tap water. All straws are recyclable. Where plastic is involved, bulk purchasing is chosen. Waste on the move is also sorted as much as possible..
