Sustainability is a key issue for restaurant owners. It is important for their customers, but also to support their vision of their own mission: to feed people. At Edenred, we are convinced that this mission is a strong responsibility in a challenging world. This is why we have created #myidealrestaurant challenge to support sustainable initiatives from independent restaurants with the help of their communities.

For the first year, myidealrestaurant was open in our 39 countries to any restaurants willing to submit a sustainable project in one of these categories: healthy nutrition, local supply, information to consumers, environmental practices and best employer.

The challenge took place between September 14th and October 21th.

Two winners have been selected: one thanks to a jury composed of Edenred professionnals and the other one thanks to the vote of the public.

Winner from the Jury : L’Ancora SRL, Emanuele’s project from Italy

Winner from the public votes: Restaurante Tempero Caipira, Alex’s project from Brazil
