We promote sustainability together with our lunch network

Edenred is the market leader in employee benefits and it’s important for us to lead by example in the field of sustainability as well. With environmentally friendly choices, the Edenred Lounari merchants can create a positive impact on the environment. Offer your customers vegetarian options and take advantage of fresh, seasonal ingredients. This is how you make eco-friendly choices every day and serve tasty and nutritious food. We are all in this together!

Three easy and responsible choices for all Edenred Lounari partners:


1. Utilize Finnish ingredients

Food made from Finnish ingredients is safe and healthy. The food chain is closely monitored and regulated in order to make food production as sustainable as possible. When it comes to the food quality, the health of food-producing animals and food hygiene are also highly important. In addition, the quality of food is also high thanks to the clean Finnish air and water.

Therefore, choose Finnish ingredients when planning your menu. By supporting domestic food production, you also support employment opportunities in Finland. About 340,000 people work within Finnish food production, for example in agriculture and the food industry.*


2. Take the seasons into account

Finland’s four seasons affect the quality, taste, availability and price of vegetables and fruits. When you offer the best vegetables and fruits of each season, your customers will get more varied and healthier food all year round. At the same time, you can find new flavors and achieve variety to your menu in an easy and cost-effective manner.

Seasonal food is a sustainable choice as the production of seasonal ingredients requires less energy and fertilizers.**


3. Provide a variety of vegetarian options

The popularity of plant-based diets is constantly growing and the trend is here to stay. Restaurant operators need to adapt to this change that promotes the well-being of both people and the environment. A colorful, nutrient-rich diet has many health benefits. For example, vegetables help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.*** Restaurants and cafés that offer a variety of vegetarian options on their menu support their customers’ healthy lifestyles.

Edenred supports sustainable development with both small and small steps

Sustainable values guide our daily operations now and in the future. Sustainability to us means both small, daily activities and global responsibility and charity projects.

Together with our tens of thousands of partners , we create a better everyday life for half a million employees in Finland. At the same time, we support sustainable development, encourage healthy lifestyles and increase overall well-being.
