The Good Food Resto label
The Good Food Resto label aims to support and guide restaurants that are involved in a sustainable approach. It responds to a demand from the inhabitants of Brussels who wish to distinguish the sustainable restaurants of the capital.
Coordinated by Brussels Environment, the awarding of the label has a non-commercial purpose.
The criteria for this label are based on the main principles of the Good Food strategy: the consumption of local and seasonal products, alternatives to animal proteins, food produced in an environmentally friendly way, while minimizing food waste.

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!
