Innovation and digitalisation
At Nectari we use digital solutions to reduce paper consumption.
We have invested heavily in this area.
Our extensive wine list is presented on
an iPad to avoid using paper.
It is possible to consult our menu on your mobile phone using QR codes
Among other things, we have introduced dry nitrogen into our repertoire.
Our dedication to healthy gastronomy means that our food meets the following requirements:
Our fruit and vegetables come directly from El Maresme and El Prat.
Our meats come from local farms.
We are passionate about fresh produce.
We have our own vegetable gardens which we tend ourselves.
The impact of our activity is real and we want
to be aware of it. To this end, we measure our consumption
and set ourselves very specific challenges.
-6,17%, in electricity consumption compared to the previous year.
-26,46% in water consumption compared to last year.
the Emmaus Foundation.
The Emmaus Foundation is a local organisation that supplies decent,
quality food to elderly people and families in vulnerable situations.
Our values are closely aligned: human solidarity, inviolable dignity of the person, generosity and respect.
We have two very specific objectives:
We donate leftover food and thus minimise waste.
We manage any food waste responsibly.
3. We have eliminated single-use plastic.
4. Water is served in returnable or reusable containers.
2. We have opted for the digitalisation of our menu and the management of orders via iPads.
2. We have water flow aerators on taps and we have installed dual flush systems.
Mobility and accessibility
We aim to demonstrate our commitment through our facilities and our conduct. What we have done so far:
Our entire restaurant is accessible and has toilets adapted for reduced mobility.
Our travel is done on foot, by public transport or in emission-neutral vehicles.
We provide our customers with information about public transportation.
We have parking facilities for bicycles and scooters to encourage staff to commute using these alternatives.
We place a huge amount of value in the people who
are part of Restaurant Nectari

sustainability, sales techniques

We involve the staff in the design of our menu: we feel that the combination of everyone’s knowledge allows us to grow more effectively.
We offer flexible working hours and scheduling so that members
of the team can better
care for their families.
We share the world in which we live and, as such, we take into account
our environment and how we can do our part.

including the Casal dels Infants.
