A big company making a difference
The Wagamama group works hard on its sustainability policy, a subject at the heart of many a Brightonian but less common amongst national chains. All of their eggs come from free range hens, their energy is green and renewable giving them a zero emissions rating. They even pump their scrap and left over food back into the grid through anaerobic composting, the methane from which powers energy generators.
The feel good doesn’t stop there, the Make it A Rainbow initiative, which was first launched in central London before being extended to Manchester and Wagamama Brighton donates all profits from bun sales to LGBT+ charities on days when a rainbow is spotted over the respective cities.
