The power of the fork

Taking small steps makes a big difference! Even that small move you make when you choose to include plant-based options in your menu instead of meat. Together, we make the world a little greener. So what are you waiting for?

Have you ever considered incorporating plant-based options in your company kitchen?


But how do you actually start? We can help you get started on reducing the CO2 footprint of your organization and contribute to the climate goals of the EU.

Drought, heatwaves, floods, wildfires, landslides, rising sea levels, shrinking biodiversity... The consequences of climate change are no longer a distant issue. With the European Climate Law, the European Union is committed to achieving CO2 neutrality by 2050. To limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, we all need to reduce our CO2 emissions together. Companies and entrepreneurs can do a lot to shrink their ecological footprint.

Serve plant-based options

Does your company provide lunch for employees? By switching to a (partially) plant-based menu, you can reduce the CO2 emissions associated with animal products and make a positive impact on the climate. Here are some tips for offering delicious and climate-friendly dishes in your company:

  • Offer one or more plant-based dishes that are not only tasty but also familiar. Focus on "classics" where you replace meat with a plant-based alternative. Think of plant-based "vol-au-vent" or spaghetti, veggie meatballs in tomato sauce, chili sin carne... This way, it remains manageable for the kitchen staff, and the entire menu doesn't need to be drastically changed. Moreover, these are dishes that everyone knows and enjoys (or almost does 😊), which makes it easier to encourage people to try them.
  • Provide tasty meat alternatives. Make it easy for yourself: choose Greenway's plant-based range. With our versatile selection, from minced and burgers to sausages and balls, you effortlessly convince your employees of the plant-based kitchen.
  • Highlight plant-based dishes. Organize a 'Burger Day' where, in addition to the 'regular' burgers, one or more surprising plant-based burgers are on the menu, or schedule a fixed veggie day during the week.
  • Focus op de voordelen van plant-based eten:
      1. Good for the environment: food production accounts for 26% of global CO2 emissions. Climate-friendly eating habits with more plant-based products reduce food emissions by 50%.
      2. Good for your employees: plant-based eating is healthy. Greenway products have Nutriscore A and B and are mostly allergen-free. This makes your employees feel more vital, and who knows, you might even inspire them to eat more plant-based at home as well. Healthy employees are less sick, which is beneficial for the operation of your company.
      3. Good for your reputation: investing in the well-being of your employees by treating them to healthy, surprising, and delicious meals enhances the reputation of your organization.
