Working with Hyper Local Suppliers:

One of our core principles is to support local businesses and reduce carbon emissions caused by transportation. That's why we prioritize working with hyper local suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability. By sourcing ingredients from nearby farmers and producers where appropriate, we not only ensure fresher and higher quality products but also support the local economy.

We firmly believe that maintaining strong relationships with our suppliers fosters transparency and enables us to make informed choices about the sourcing process. By reducing the distance between farm and fork, we minimize our environmental impact while delivering the finest ingredients to your plate. So at Poco you'll find wine, beer and fresh salads and vegetables produced just a couple of miles away.

Recycled and Recyclable Packaging

At Poco Pizza, we recognize the importance of packaging in the battle against waste. That's why we have implemented an eco-friendly packaging system that prioritizes recycled and recyclable materials. Our pizza boxes and other packaging materials are made from post-consumer recycled paper, reducing the demand for virgin materials and diverting waste from landfills.

By opting for recyclable packaging, we empower our customers to make environmentally responsible choices. We encourage you to dispose of our packaging properly by recycling it, ensuring a circular economy that reduces the strain on our planet's resources.

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products:

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond the food we serve and the packaging we use. We understand that responsible cleaning practices are crucial for preserving the environment. That's why we have carefully chosen environmentally friendly cleaning products to maintain the cleanliness of our premises.

By selecting eco-conscious cleaning solutions, we minimize the use of harmful chemicals that can harm ecosystems and contribute to water pollution. Our dedication to environmentally friendly cleaning products ensures that we uphold our values from the kitchen to every corner of our establishment.


Reducing Food Waste

Food waste is a significant global concern, and we are determined to combat this issue within our own operations. At Poco Pizza, we actively implement strategies to reduce food waste throughout our processes. One example is our practice of providing leftover dough to our staff, who take it home and transform it into delicious focaccia. This allows us to avoid unnecessary waste and make the most out of our ingredients.

By taking these steps, we ensure that we play our part in reducing the overall environmental impact associated with food waste.
