The Sustainable Food Co. was born in early 2020 out of the desire to combine two great things in life - food and sustainability - into one glorious fruit. Our aim is to inspire Kiwis to revisit the way, the why and the how we eat, collectively make a change for the better.
We all know that eating more plants comes with bountiful health benefits - it instantly boosts your energy, makes you feel great, increases your vitamin and mineral intake, the list goes on. Pair that with a good conscience from knowing you are supporting improved sustainability practices and reducing your waste to landfill - in our eyes that’s a win win.
We aspire to become one of NZ’s most trusted and exciting catering companies, by delivering contemporary and sustainable food to corporate events, weddings, retreats, private parties and more.
Meet The Chef:
Trained in Environmental Management and a certified Vegan Chef, Amy - Founder and Queen of Everything at The SFC - always knew these two topics combined together like two peas in a pod. Having worked in the food industry since her very first job picking strawberries at 15, and at a NGO tackling plastic pollution in our environment, the amount of waste - both plastic and food - ending up in landfills here in NZ absolutely dismayed her.
While working her way around the Pacific Islands as a volunteer cook, Amy was using as little plastic as possible in every meal. The more she cooked, the more it became obvious that her love for the kitchen was more than just a hobby, and the idea of delivering waste-free meals on a larger scale back home started brewing. Amy's planning process begun while still travelling the world - she explored and expanded her passion everywhere she went, learning from leaders in the food sustainability movement in Australia, The Cook Islands and continuing in Bali.
Flash forward to today and now The SFC is delivering zero-waste meals across Auckland, with hopes of expanding and contributing more and more towards the rising movement of sustainable food.
"It's got to be exciting. It's got to be fun. It's got to be good for you, and it's got to be good for the planet. That's how food should be. A quadruple whammy".
- Amy Klitscher, Founder & Sustainable Chef
