Waste Management

Truffles works to create the green standard for “low impact” events by successfully diverting 95% of waste through the adoption of a comprehensive composting and recycling system used in-house and on-site at events.

Sourcing & Responsibility

Truffles sources from suppliers that share our vision for sustainability. We look for partners who are committed to sustainable innovation and integrity, and who produce natural and ethical foods. All of our sandwich meats are preservative and additive free and we source quality Ocean Wise certified seafood products as a top priority.

Energy & Water

Truffles uses Energy Star appliances that are well maintained to further conserve energy. In 2012, our entire facility underwent a major lighting retrofit which will save the equivalent of two single family households’ worth of annual energy use.

COMMUNITY PROGRAM

We believe giving back to the community contributes to the betterment of Vancouver Island and its residents.

With your help, every month we donate to a featured local non-profit through our coffee purchasing community program with Level Ground Trading.

For every pound of coffee we purchase (served at our events, Habitat Café and through our express catering), we donate $1 to rotating community partners.
