Own vegetable cultivation, seasonal and organic. Umeå's restaurants work with a strong focus on sustainability.
Food & Climate Network
The Food & Climate network is a nerwork in which several of Umeå's restaurants and school kitchens participate to contribute together to a more sustainable restaurant industry. The participants in the network make every effort to reduce their impact on the climate and the environment, and collaboration is permeated by a transparency where the restaurants openly show how they work with sustainability in the business.
With a focus on small-scale and good ingredients, dishes are offered that mix international flavours with those from Northern Sweden. The restaurant is almost self-sufficient in vegetables from the restaurant’s own vegetable farm by the Umeälven river. The restaurant is KRAV marked in level 2.
