Our planet is out of balance and human beings have contributed to this situation. That’s why we at BBROOD are very conscious with respect to the raw materials that we use. We constantly look critically at all our products and processes, and the organization as such. In our opinion, an important aspect of sustainability is a transparent process, which allows us to trace our raw materials. We only use ingredients that are pure, without any unnecessary additives.
In our shop at Rozengracht we sell bread ‘fresh from yesterday’.
Re-use our bread packaging till the BROOD falls through! You get 10% off if you re-use it.
All our shops and bakeries make use of green power, and you can compost our used packaging as it is biodegradable.
We are in the process of developing a waste-free coffee chain, with vegan options and more sustainability of all our raw materials.
All our bakers wear GOTS-certified uniforms. This certificate guarantees that the whole production process is organic, from the material for the clothes up to the print.
bbrood carrier bags
In our shops we don’t sell plastic bags. Instead, we propose carrier bags that are made from flour bags that came from the miller.
Part of the sales of these carrier bags is invested in training in the framework of the B.I.S.S. project, so that participants in this initiative can make a smooth start with their own bakery.
At BBROOD we believe in circulation: why throw away a flour bag if you can recycle it into a nice, handy and strong carrier bag??!
SUPERETTE – Superette is a GOTS-certified serigraphy that works with organic cotton only. GOTS certification guarantees that the entire production process is organic. This means that the cotton farmer is GOTS-certified, the dyer is GOTS-certified, the tailor is GOTS-certified …. You will understand now. Independent businesses control all participating companies to check if they work according to the strict requirements. As such, we and you as our customer know for sure that our products are purely organic.
