Nolla

May 3, 2020

The idea of Nolla (meaning “zero” in Finnish) was born out of a desire to serve great food without compromising sustainability. We aim to minimise the amount of waste we produce with everyday actions that follow our sustainable values and waste-free ideology. All of our ingredients are mindfully sourced from local farmers, fishermen and producers, with a strong focus on sustainability. We place a heavy emphasis on seasonality, which is how we can offer the best of local produce all year round without having to sacrifice our values. Our in-house composter enables us to close the loop by offering our suppliers composted soil to take back to their fields in return for their great ingredients.

Our approach to sustainability goes beyond the basics like food packaging and plastic. We have thought of every little detail, from our clothing to our energy consumption.

Nolla also has food-tracking software used among corporate food service companies to keep track of what sells and what rots.

Things of note

Our gift cards are made with biodegradable poppyseed paper. Recipients can plant them in their gardens after use. We also hosts occasional “blackout dinners,” where cooking is done without electricity on a live-fire grill and guests dine by candlelight.

A little more

We supply our small farmers and producers with reusable containers.
