wagamama first opened its doors in 1992 in london’s bloomsbury. inspired by fast-paced, japanese ramen bars and a celebration of asian food, wagamama burst into life. we set out to create a unique way of eating. bringing the fresh, nourishing, flavours of asia to all. we’re trialling a bowl-return initiative called bowl bank in wagamama brighton. at this restaurant, you can return your wagamama take-out bowls to us, where we will ensure they are collected and commercially recycled. we’ve undertaken a project to improve the sustainability of our take-out packaging, we have taken in a wide range of factors into our sustainable solution and will be launching our new packaging in the first half of 2022. In 2021, as one of our actions for positive change, we made the pledge to make 50% of our menu plant-based. meaning half of the dishes on our menu, will be made up of ingredients primarily from plants, which was reached early in October 2021. We are a founding member of Hospitality Zero Carbon Forum and co-chairing working group, moving to measure and report on Scope 3 emissions, and developing roadmap to net zero.
We are always happy to network and share our experiences with the industry, please get in touch via the community.
