Here at Rootastes, we strive to offer delicious lunches prepared with healthy, locally sourced ingredients that are sustainable in nature. These are just a few of our core values, and we’re constantly striving towards continuous improvement, which is why we underwent an extensive Eat Real Certified Audit.
And we passed!
Rootastes is proud to announce that we are Eat Real Certified – Green Level!
What does Eat Real Certified mean?
The Eat Real certification process reviews the healthfulness and sustainability of an operation- meaning us! We were evaluated by a registered dietician and the US Healthful Food Council on four criteria:
Responsible – Provides nutritional benefit.
Epicurean – Preparation enhances food quality and experience.
Agricultural – Comes from the safest and highest food quality sources.
Leadership – Enables better choices.
Rootastes was commended for our healthy options, recipes primarily made from scratch, locally sourced produce, vegetarian and vegan options, allergen-friendly offerings, compostable to-go wares, and more.
Why become Eat Real Certified?
Our certification with Eat Real demonstrates our commitment to providing healthy options, cutting down or eliminating fried and processed foods, and using local and sustainable vendors.
The certification also allowed us to determine areas of improvement.
Rootastes was founded on the mission to make corporate lunch healthier without sacrificing taste. We believe that nourishment is the cornerstone to an active mind and body, which is why our lunches are prepared fresh from healthy and – whenever possible – local ingredients. We also believe that companies can be a force for good, and use sustainable packaging, most of which is compostable. Learn more about us here.
We look forward to continuing to serve the Greater Boston area with real food that promotes satisfaction, productivity, health, and sustainability!
