Food systems have the potential to nurture human health and support environmental sustainability; however, they
are currently threatening both. Source: the EAT–Lancet Commission

Our mission in a nutshell

  • Explore and learn more about our food systems and provide a meaningful workspace for young people.
  • Promote initiatives to reduce food waste, strengthen circular and healthy food concepts.
  • Use the ancient narrative of bread making and fermentation to promote informal education programs about science.

Narrative of Bread
We explore new ways to share the ancient narrative of bread and discuss topics related to nutrition, food waste and health. In our circulair bakery and during workshops we use old bread as an ingredient to improve our bread. This methode has been selected as a best practice by the Dutch Platform for Circular Economy.. Try it out in our café.

Informal education & Science communication
We organise workshops and tailor-made programs for companies, schools and the general public and explain fundamental scientific principles that underlie the process of fermentation, bread making and cooking.
