You may be thinking what is sustainability and how does it affect the restaurant industry?

Sustainability is the way people use resources without the resources running out. In simpler terms, it is reducing the waste of a product or implementing ways to help the environment.

Why is sustainability important?

We live in a world where environmental consciousness is a top priority. The issue of the decline of our planet’s natural resources has become extremely important. With these ecological issues striking social trends, people strive to be more aware of the products they’re using and the waste they produce.

Research shows over 75% of consumers would choose a business with sustainable services over other non-sustainable industry. This is also a significant factor when deciding if you will be spending your money with a company.

Sustainability Within Noja

Our customers wants and needs are just as important as the food we produce. With our customers and staff in mind, we asked ourselves a few questions when discussing sustainability within our restaurant.

Why is it important to have a sustainable restaurant?
One major issue that causes the decline of natural resources is food waste. Think about the amount of food not used within a restaurant. They use only what they need from their products and toss the rest in the trash without thinking.

A restaurant can create opportunities to reduce food waste in multiple ways. Sustainability in the food industry can positively affect the decline of food resources in the world.

How will we implement sustainability?
When thinking of the major food waste issue within the restaurant industry, we developed a plan to help preserve products. The best way to reduce food waste is to use every ingredient completely.

From the most abundant ingredient to the smallest, every inch is used while preparing your meal. With our customer’s desires in mind, we will continue to implement food waste reduction to become more environmentally conscious.

Noja prides itself on being environmentally aware while providing our guests with the most memorable experience. By using every ingredient entirely, we reduce food waste drastically. Our goal while reducing the waste of high-quality ingredients is to protect our planet and help restore earth’s natural resources.
