Soybeans are the king of beans, probably the most important bean in the world, no questions asked.
It´s providing cheap vegetable protein for millions of people around the world and not only that,
because they contain no starch, they are also a good source of protein even for diabetics.

Soybeans can be used to tons of things.
We use soy protein as the main ingredient in our Tennessee Whiskey Marinated Patty, and we also use soymilk as a base in our mayonnaises and and soy can be used for so much more.
Like for example, soybeans can also be used as yoghurt substitutes, to create tofu, soy sauce which in an important ingredient in Asian Cooking, miso paste or even as a snack food as roasted beans.

Soybean Industry

Unfortunately the soybean industry is causing widespread deforestation and displacement of small farmers and indigenous peoples as well as child labor, which is not only a violation of children’s rights but also exploitation of children.

How do we address this issue?

  • We use less soy in our kitchen
    For example, we have decreased the amount of soy protein in our Soy Patty with 40% and replaced it with black bean and black rice.
  • Replace where possible
    We don´t use tofu anymore for our Baykuhn on our fabulous Mustard and Mayo burger anymore, but rather lentils.
  • Only cooperating with proper suppliers
    All our soy protein in our burgers and sausages are from sources in the northern hemisphere, meaning no trees has been cut down to produce it and no land grabbing has taken place.
    Our supplier is conducting random DNA testing to ensure this
  • Did we mention our soy proteins are GMO Free??

Food Waste

According to a 2016 report called World Hunger and Poverty Facts and Statistics, there is enough food produced in the world to feed everyone, but unfortunately, almost one third of all food produced is lost or wasted, amounting to an astonishing 1.3 billion tonnes of food annually.

But by reducing food waste, we don’t only fight world hunger.
Food waste is a major contributor to global emissions of greenhouse gases and shockingly enough, up to 10% of the total greenhouse gases are generated from food that have been produced but not consumed.
If Food Waste would be a country it would rank as the 3rd biggest emitter, just after USA and China.

Reducing food waste is a priority for us, not only to help fight hunger but also to make an impact on climate change. Taking the necessary steps can have a positive effect on these areas.

How do we address this issue?

  • Shop Smart
    We only shop what we need, purchasing in bulk might be more convenient and cheaper, but research has shown that this shopping method leads to more food waste.
  • Reduce the number of items on the menu
    When we first opened up, we had plenty of choices on the menu, but we noticed that some days, there were no demands for certain burgers, when the selection was too big and that would eventually end up creating food waste. To decrease our food waste, we decided to keep the most popular burgers and cut down the selection by half. This way, we were able to ensure that our burgers are ordered frequently throughout the day.
  • Biogas
    Even after trying to reduce food waste as much as possible, we will still have a certain amount of it. Despite our best efforts to reduce food wastage, some amount of leftover food from customers is also inevitable.

    So we collect all food waste and leftovers and they are sent to become useful environmentally friendly products – biogas and biofertilizer.

    Biogas is an eco-friendly and renewable source of energy. It does not add any extra CO2 to the atmosphere; rather it utilizes the same amount that was extracted from it before burning. This helps balance out emissions and promotes a healthier environment.

    Some of the biogas we generate is even sold back to us and used to produce your meals & provide heating at our outdoor seating area.

Plastic Waste

Even though Plastic have many advantages, at the same time it have become one of most hazardous materials in our world. Plastic comprises up to 80% of all marine waste and marine species ingest or are entangled by plastic debris, which causes severe injuries and death.

Plastic breaks down into small particles called microplastics and spread all over our eco-system and can be found in all oceans but also in tap-water and are know to be carcinogenic and to interfere with the body’s endocrine system, causing developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune disorders in both humans and wildlife.

Difficult to recycle

Many of the plastic simply can’t be recycled, and those that can be recycled, cant be recycled indefinetly.
The global average for plastic recycling is around at a depressing 14%.

How do we address this issue?

  • Switching from plastic to other materials
    Half of all the plastic produced are used to create single-use items such as shopping bags, cups and straws. So we have switched out all our straws, take away bags, cups to other materials.
    Bamboo and Metal straws, paperbags and carton cups.
