Decidedly 2020 is a very special year for EcoCook. Certainly, current circumstances have slowed our explosive growth. However, the global economic and social health crisis has allowed us to confirm a whole series of strong points of our program: the recurrence of our Business Model, the commitment of our restaurant members, as well as the interest and potential of our digital solution.
After the launch of our first video in June, we took this situation as an opportunity to finalize the revision of the EcoCook standard and develop a new digital platform for assessing and certifying the sustainability level of restaurants.
Today, we are extremely happy to share with you the new version of the EcoCook certification! The REVOLUTIONARY Sustainable Restaurant Certification!
As you can see on the graph above, the EcoCook Sustainable Restaurant 2020 certification has now 3 additional levels, Silver, Gold and Platinium. These three additional levels of certification are the result of the entire revision and improvement process of the EcoCook Sustainable Restaurant standard that we have undertaken since v2017, the previous EcoCook version. For those of you that just met us, EcoCook was born on 2013 .
Before starting to explain the changes in the new version, we would like to remind you that the EcoCook certification is an INDEPENDENT certification. It does not depend on any person, organization, public or private institution and was developed in 2013 by a team of experts in the field of certification and healthy & sustainable food.
Today EcoCook counts with the recognition of the “Conférence romande des marchés publics” and the support of its members, as well as its partners, both in Switzerland and internationally.
