Sustainable dining in Cairns

Climate Calories Initiative:

Through Climate Calories, diners will immediately be able to see whether the ingredients in their dish are locally sourced, sustainably grown or caught, have an indigenous connection, consciously reduce waste and were delivered to the restaurant in eco-friendly packaging.

Using icons alongside each dish, Climate Calories assures diners that the ingredients in their meal are:

  • Locally sourced - within a three-hour radius of the restaurant
  • Minimise waste - the chef has used all of the ingredient to reduce any waste
  • Feature ethical meats – using the whole beast, line caught fish or sustainably farmed
  • Supplied to the restaurant in eco-friendly packaging –100% recycled or bio-packaging
  • Are culturally considered – using native ingredients and working with indigenous communities
