Focus on sustainability: casualfood launches collaborations with RECUP and

Sustainability is becoming more and more important. casualfood has known that for a long time and is a forerunner when it comes to sustainability at airports and stations. Now, the travel catering firm is launching two pilot projects at Frankfurt Airport. From now onwards, RECUP returnable cups will be used at selected casualfood restaurants and stores. As part of a second collaboration, casualfood will also donate food which is still fit for consumption to the initiative for further use and distribution.

“We all know how important sustainability is to protect our planet. As a forerunner in Germany’s travel catering sector, we think it is very important for us to live up to our role and test sustainable ideas and concepts at our restaurants and stores. If the initiatives are successful, we want to inspire more companies at airports and stations to take part,” say Stefan Weber and Michael Weigel, Managing Directors of casualfood GmbH.

Reducing disposable cups

From March onwards, RECUP cups will be used at seven casualfood outlets in Frankfurt Airport – MONDO Bianco, GOODMAN & FILIPPO, Hermann’s, two QUICKER’s and two Superfood stores. The circular deposit system can substantially reduce the use of disposable cups. Customers pay a deposit of €1 for a RECUP and get this money back when they return the cup. Following the successful completion of the pilot project, there are plans to expand it to all casualfood restaurants and shops at Frankfurt Airport. In addition to this, casualfood is working with the operator Fraport to involve other food-service partners in the initiative so as to achieve across-the-board acceptance. Subsequently, there are plans to use RECUP returnable cups at Berlin-Brandenburg Airport and other airports.

Less food waste

In the future, casualfood will also work with the initiative to waste less food and prevent it from being thrown away. As part of this collaboration, the charity’s volunteer food savers will initially collect products which are still fit for consumption from Frankfurt Central Railway Station and a QUICKER’s in Terminal 2 at Frankfurt Airport. The food will then be redistributed. If this proves successful, there are plans to extend the partnership.

casualfood steps up its focus on sustainability in 2022

casualfood is aware of its responsibility and has developed a sustainability strategy with an extensive package of measures for 2022. The two pilot projects will kick off the company’s campaign for the year; further sustainability measures will follow. casualfood has been paying close attention to sustainable corporate governance ever since it was established in 2005. It focuses on sustainable products and supply chains, close collaboration with primarily regional suppliers, offering numerous choices for healthy eating, and ensuring that packaging is constantly optimised and designed to be sustainable. On top of all this, the company is a fair, attractive employer which is committed to diversity and equal opportunities and also prioritises occupational health and safety.
