Aalto University and Antell open a staff restaurant with a focus on sustainable development in Otaniemi
Aalto University and Antell Catering have opened a staff restaurant under the theme of sustainable development on the Otaniemi campus (Lämpömiehenkuja 2).
The restaurant serves authentic and tasty food from local and regional ingredients prepared and cooked in its own kitchen. The concept was designed in cooperation with chef and restaurant consultant Markus Maulavirta.
The restaurant, operated by Antell-Catering, serves clean, healthy, tasty food with minimal processing that is sourced local or regional producers. All its operations are in-line with the principles of sustainable development, including its methods for the purchase of raw materials and cooking and preparation of food as well as its recipes, service content, interior design, cleaning detergents and waste management.
The aim of the restaurant is to produce well-being and a sense of community in daily life.
− Realising our values also in the area of restaurant services is important to us. We strive to identify new and bold solutions that are also ethically sustainable. My hope is that this high-quality restaurant would become a lively meeting place for both Aalto staff and students and our interest groups, says Tuula Teeri, President of Aalto University.
Antell-Catering Oy provides restaurant solutions that account for the values and objectives of the client.
− The Aalto University restaurant is a good example of a restaurant highlighting the aim of sustainable development, where the restaurant manager plans the lunch menu with an emphasis on organic and locally and regionally sourced food. The lunch menus in all of Antell’s 115 restaurants serving a wide variety of customers are all different, with authentic, versatile and tasty food prepared in the kitchen of the restaurant as a common denominator, stresses Tomi Lantto, Managing Director of Antell-Catering Oy.
The furnishings and the layout of the restaurant were designed by Design Studio Muotohiomo. Architectural design for the renovation of the restaurant building was done by VPL-Arkkitehdit Oy.
The restaurant provides catering services. Bread baked at the restaurant and other products can be purchased to take home.
