The ‘Good Food’ label, a designation bestowed upon canteens that promote healthy and sustainable menus, has been awarded to 16 new kitchens in the Brussels region.
The label was launched in 2016, on the initiative of Environment Minister Céline Fremault (cdH). Its purpose is to promote those canteens and restaurants offering healthy, sustainable menus, and which also take special measures to minimise food waste.
28 canteens have already received the award, in addition to the 16 new recipients. In total, these 44 kitchens serve 21,963 meals on a daily basis.
The label consists of three ‘levels’: three ‘forks’ (fourchettes) corresponding to the highest level, and one ‘fork’ to the lowest. Thus far, it has been awarded to canteens that serve a variety of different companies, schools, crèches, rest homes and public institutions in Brussels.
The 16 new recipients of the award are: the canteen of the nursery Val Fleuri (3 forks); the canteens of Elia Vilvorde, Elia Emperor , Facilitair Bedrijf Hermann Teirlinck, Facilitair Bedrijf Conscience, Wolufacilites, INAMI, European Council, Vervloesem School, Parc Malou School, Princess Paola School, Saint Crib-Job and the crib Les Hirondelles (2 forks); and the canteens of the Facilitair Bedrijf Ellips, residence 3 Tilleuls CPAS Saint-Gilles and Belfius (1 fork).
