At Aloha we take responsibility for our guests, our staff and the world around us. We translated this responsibility into five pillars, so we can show others what we’re doing.
Central to our menu are healthy products of high quality. We serve more vegetables in relation to meat and combine good food with minimal waste production. We experiment with the use of waste products from food preparations, pay attention to portion sizes and convert the remaining waste from the kitchen into compost.
Circular thinking and working
We buy local and seasonal products and expect our suppliers to also think about sustainability. We think and work circular. A way of thinking and acting, which we also apply to our purchasing policy. In addition to this we pay attention to portion sizes and experiment with new dishes using leftover products from food preparations. What remains is converted into value as much as possible. For instance, “Rotterzwam” uses our coffee grounds to grow oyster mushrooms, which we then use in our dishes. We make coffee-mayonaise out of unused espresso shots and waste products from our own coffee roastery. Also our interior is based on creating new value by giving furniture a second life and our floors are made out of used wood. Anything that needs repairing isn’t thrown away, instead we repair it ourselves.
The catering industry is hard work. That is why we maximize working days to eight hours per shift on average, have mandatory breaks with healthy meals and give our people a gym subscription or contribute financially in other sports activities. In addition to job satisfaction, we attach much value to input and involvement. We actively pursue a diverse team with a passion for food and an eye for the future. We think collectively about how we can make Aloha more sustainable and circular, and how we can give our guests an even better Aloha experience.
Everybody is welcome in Aloha and we’re working hard towards also making Aloha practically accessible for everyone. A new design for our entrance is ready, so our guest who experience difficulty walking will be able to enter Aloha. Inside, our guests can choose from a big variety of seating on different levels, with or without armrests.
Together we can make our world a better place. That is why Aloha values a good relationship with our surroundings. We organize thinktank sessions on sustainability with outside parties and talk to students interested in supporting sustainability. They inspire us, and we in turn hope to inspire them. Finally, we also do volunteer work, among other places at the Voedseltuin.
