This restaurant in Netherlands serves food waste to solve problems on food waste
Instock, a social enterprise in Netherlands, is now trying to help solve the world’s problem on food waste by serving meals made entirely out of surplus food.
This was highlighted in the report of Huffington Post, which detailed how Instock grew from just a mere frustration of a certain store manager over leftover food to a full-blown social enterprise with three stores and online shop.
As of now, Instock collects surplus food from 160 Albert Heijn stores across the Netherlands and has three locations.
“At the time we founded Instock, there was lots of talk about this issue [on food waste], but we actually wanted to do something about it,” Instock founder Bart Roetert said.
“[To date] we get both the foodies and the eco-minded people,” he added.
A four-course dinner at Instock costs 29 euros ($34) and uses traditional methods and fusion flavors to transform leftovers, Huffington post said.
