Welcome to .506 Forest
Plant with us
We create food experiences that enrich our planet and our life, and that help sustain life on earth. Planting trees is another way of doing just that. Forests and food security are tightly related. Trees help to reduce the vulnerability of people to climate change by providing food and other ecosystem services during critical periods of climate driven food shortages. Forests, trees on farms and agroforestry systems contribute to food security, nutrition and livelihoods in several ways, including as a direct source of food, fuel, employment and cash income.
.506 is a culinary lab based in Copenhagen. We work with a systemic approach to meet people right where they are. We create food experiences for today’s thought leaders and change advocates, develops and sell retail products that make the path to a more sustainable lifestyle both smoother and tastier, and we serve high quality, low-cost climate-friendly meals at a large scale. We aim to shift the agenda of many rather than few, towards a more sustainable lifestyle by creating food and experiences that are always In Favour of Life. The combination of our team’s experience and knowledge lets us merge the sensibility and savoir-faire found in high-end cuisine, with a philosophy that puts our planet and humanity first. Heavily guided by our sustainability principles, we have a deep respect for our immediate surroundings, while we keep a global perspective wherever in the world it might be serving food.
Our social responsibility
On a daily basis, we serve low-cost, high-quality lunches to over 1600 people from different offices. We use delicious food and storytelling as an enabler for changing mindsets, creating conversation, and growing awareness around the impact that our daily food choices have on our planet. Throughout the last two years, the feedback from our customers has been increasingly positive. In a recent survey, 50% of our customers said they were inspired to change daily habits thanks to our lunch. That to us means a lot, it means that change is already happening.
Our Sustainability Principles:
* Make plants play the central role
* Carefully select all ingredients
* Embrace change
* Create reflection through storytelling
* Turn waste into value
