Anna and Bonnie from SAILMATE met Bart, who is the co-founder of INSTOCK, during a sustainability competition set up by Heineken. We showed how dirt resistent the sleek surface of sail material proved by putting ketch-up on the aprons on stage and removing it easily without any traces. Bart was part of the jury and convicted that these upcycled aprons are not only useful, but also stylish in his restaurants and food trucks.
Our no waste ambition at SAILMATE by upcycling is same same but different to the INSTOCK concept. Read further to get more information about our partner.
Did you know that 1/3 of all food production is being wasted?
Our partner INSTOCK is a restaurant that works only with food waste and creates delicious and creative menus out of that. Sounds like SAILMATE's sister just in the food industry ;-)
They started with one restaurant in Amsterdam and by now they have 4 restaurants in the Netherlands and do a lot of catering.
They have a holistic approach to rescue food and offer their own cooking book, workshops and selected products like their own beer and granola. Best way to check out their unique concept is of course to eat there, but also their website offers a lot about them and food waste in general.
