Green Restaurants: ‘Zero Waste’ Siloh London (FT)

Financial Times – The FT’s Daniel Garrahan and food critic Tim Hayward visit Silo, a ‘zero waste’ restaurant in Hackney, which rejects the bin, makes ice cream from waste bread, turns seaweed into pendant lighting and ‘upcycles’ used wine bottles

SILO LONDON – BECOMING ZERO WASTE

SILO BEGAN IN AUSTRALIA IN 2011 WITH ARTIST JOOST BAKKER WHO PROPOSED THE IDEA OF ‘NOT HAVING A BIN’… FROM THAT POINT SILO’S CHEF AND OWNER HAS BUILT THE BUSINESS UP TO BEING THE WORLD’S FIRST ZERO WASTE RESTAURANT.

SILO IS A RESTAURANT CONCEIVED FROM A DESIRE TO INNOVATE THE FOOD INDUSTRY WHILST DEMONSTRATING RESPECT: RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, RESPECT FOR THE WAY OUR FOOD IS GENERATED AND RESPECT FOR THE NOURISHMENT GIVEN TO OUR BODIES. THIS MEANS WE CREATE EVERYTHING FROM ITS WHOLE FORM, CUTTING OUT FOOD MILES AND OVER-PROCESSING, WHILST PRESERVING NUTRIENTS AND THE INTEGRITY OF THE INGREDIENTS IN THE PROCESS.
