Food & Drink (183)
The world’s most expensive doggy bag
In Germany, nearly 11 tons of food is thrown away every year. A restaurant in Hamburg has decided to tackle this problem in their very own way by putting a sign on tables informing visitors that they will pay a fine for their unfinished meal (€1 per 50 grams).
Why it matters
In times where a considerable proportion of the global population suffers from hunger or malnutrition, is this is a good way of reminding people of their actions? Is imposing a fine enough to make us more conscious of our disposable and wasteful ways?
Italian restaurateur Mr. Zazzeri has begun to allow separate customers to share their wine bottles with dinner.
Almdudler is an old Austrian brand of carbonated soft drink containing alpine herbs. To generate renewed interest in the brand and to broaden its usage, Almdudler formed a collaboration with Four Roses Bourbon, which, like Almdudler, is also produced on a natural basis. A new matchmaker, the AlmRose was created.
