EAT, MEET AND LEARN AT GARVERIET
The food destination of the future is already here. Garveriet in Floda is an inspiring meeting place where knowledge and curiosity about innovative, sustainable and local, small-scale food production are boosted.
WE LOVE FOOD. GENUINE FOOD.
At Garveriet, we make it simple to enjoy great food without compromising on sustainability. Already when entering the doors to Garveriet, you will experience the smell of freshly baked sourdough bread and freshly-made food. In the centre of the kitchen you will find our pride – a wood-burning oven. Stop here for a lunch, or a Swedish “fika”. Our guests can also buy local and nearby produce from our inhouse mini store.
FOOD AND MEETINGS BELONG TOGETHER.
We are convinced that food and meetings belong together. When people meet over a snack or a meal, sharing experiences and exchanging ideas, it can lead to amazing discoveries and insights.
EATING AT GARVERIET
We want the ingredients we use to be honest and genuine. We always prioritise local- and nearby produce and customise our menu by season and availability. The ingredients come from producers within aproximately a 200 kilometers radius, and the aim is to inspire others to live and eat more sustainably. Our goal is zero waste both from cooking and from plates.
CURIOSITY IS THE KEY TO KNOWLEDGE.
It is said that curiosity is the key to knowledge. At Garveriet we are curious and enjoy making new discoveries. We are constantly thinking about how we can contribute to sustainable food production both today and in the future. We don’t claim to have all the answers but we are truly committed to asking the questions and learn more about how we should act in order to make sure that we hand over a healthy earth with clean water to future generations.
