About our philosophy:
High value for the relationship between the food we eat, our health, local communities and the wellbeing of ecological systems. While food in Thailand is abundant and cheap, it’s toughto really know where your food comes from, who produced it and what has gone into its preparation. In Thailand as in the west, farmers and farming communities are becoming less and less directly connected to, or ARE, the consumers. Large scale companies are taking over increasing market share and people in urban centers like Bangkok can relate less and less to the rural, farming communities. We’re trying to take some small steps towards re-establishing that connection.
What we’ll never use:
We try not to be too militaristic. I don’t believe there are really evil foods or products out there, but generally speaking there are those that foster sustainable, healthful systems and those that harm these. We try to buy organic and locally produced as much as possible. Try to use whole, non-processed foods where we can along with free-range chicken and less threatened fish species (we don’t offer pork or beef) and avoid GMOs in favour of supporting indigenous produce species and local biodiversity.
