Labelled by Good Food

Since 2018, the Good Food Resto label values and supports restaurants that are involved in a

sustainable approach, and allows the people of Brussels to distinguish restaurants in the capital

that are exemplary in this respect.


The Good Food Resto label

And exploratory consumers


Indeed, all consumer surveys show it: the demand for a more ecological and healthier food is growing.

Beyond the impact of the volumes, a small restaurant for two, a drink with friends or a wedding party are good opportunities to rediscover the flavor of home-made preparations and discover local specialties and labeled products promoted by professionals.

Websites, applications and other information campaigns allow citizens concerned about their plate to identify establishments that are committed.

So let yourself be tempted by those who are part of the Good Food philosophy!
