What do they do ? Why do they do it ? How did they came up with this idea ?
Vegelateria is an organic and vegan restaurant in Zürich. This a unique place in this city where you can really feel the difference that a vegan alimentations can make. The food is mainly raw and the products are coming mainly from a local permaculture farm. It makes more than 25 years that the restaurant promotes a different way of eating !
As an organic restaurant, the Vegelateria needs to get good products. Working mainly with raw products the taste and the freshness of what they put in the plate is crucial. To do so they decided to work with a local farmer.
Most of there products are coming from a local producer which works using the principles of permaculture. All the food produced is of course organic and is 100% pesticides and manure free !
- Working with local producers reduces the impact of transportation. When you consume food, try to be careful about its origin. A salad coming form the other side of the world might not be the best solution for the environment.
- Pesticides and manure are responsible for land pollution and degradation of the soil. Organic culture do not use any chemicals. It is an important improvement compared to “normal” agriculture
