A close collaboration becomes even closer: Meyers takes over itm8’s canteen operation with focus on health, taste, and sustainability

A recipe of taste, health, and ecology
As a concept, Meyers brings the gastronomic experience at the forefront alongside nutritious and organic foods, prepared by proficient people with a fine-tuned sense of taste. Meyers aims to elevate the employee experience with tasty and heathy meals while maintaining an ambitious level of sustainability.
Sustainability as a common goal

Meyers distributes their sustainability effort within the areas of e.g., climate, biodiversity, animal welfare, and inclusion. As an example, they aim for an ambitious 50% CO2 reduction of food consumption by 2030 to reduce their climate footprint. Itm8 is dedicated to a similar cause and fully support their initiatives.
In addition, Meyers has worked with ecology for more than two decades and considers ecology as an important part of a holistic approach to sustainability. Thus, the produce handled in the kitchen is mostly organic – the goal is to reach the silver mark of 60-90%.
Ambition and professionalism that benefit the canteen staff
