Care's Ethical Restaurant

The first international certification for sustainable restaurants

Do you want to certify your environmental sustainable commitment, the economic and social impact of your restaurant? Are you interested in knowing whether your behaviour is really ethical?

CER is the first assessment that guarantees conformity, credibility and reliability with the issuing of an internationally recognised certificate. Together we will check your structure according to measurable and recognised standards.


Why certify your restaurant's commitment?

Sustainability in gastronomy has become a trend and it is increasingly difficult to distinguish it from greenwashing or 'green window dressing'.

From the collaboration between Mo-Food, the holding company of Norbert Niederkofler and Paolo Ferretti, and Vireo® , a certification company operating worldwide, rises CER - CARE's Ethical Restaurant. The ideal tool to counter these phenomena.
