WE CARE ABOUT RESPONSIBLE FOOD
FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET
The huge changes our world is going through means we all share a responsibility to ensure there is a future for all of us, for people and nature alike. We all must work to protect our shared environment. How we eat can either make the world more sustainable or make it less sustainable.
It is not always easy to do things in a sustainable way, but given the stakes, how can we justify any alternative?
DIS stands for a better tomorrow and a sustainable future for all of us.
We keep in mind that we eat today as only royalty did in the past. Not so long ago in the Netherlands, Wednesday was the only day for meat. Salmon on toast was a special treat on a holiday. Yet today we all expect to eat a bagel with lox, avocado, and sesame seeds on a daily basis. This has consequences.
Obviously no one wants to go back in time to eating without variety, or to when few people had enough to eat. But we also have to think through how we can offer the variety and sustainability that will engineer a better future for all of us without being greedy or gluttonous. We have to conduct business that helps us all keep our eyes on the future.
This means we choose as many sustainable products as we can, deliver our food in biodegradable packaging, use electric vehicles to make our deliveries and pick our ingredients with care. We focus on vegetables that are harvested in The Netherlands to limit our carbon footprint dramatically. That’s a good start, but there are always ways to improve. If you have any suggestions on how to make our business more sustainable, don't hesitate to reach out!
