Respecting Mother Earth is in our DNA.
We’re always pushing to do better by the environment and create a better future, one delicious burger at a time. To us, sustainability is more than just taking care of our environment, it’s also about caring for our farmers, animals, employees and local communities.
We have an Australian first sourcing promise and work with local farmers and suppliers. It keeps our food distribution footprint (food miles) low and ensures the ingredients in your burger are as fresh as possible.
We like to keep it real. Our beef, lamb and chicken are 100% Australian, antibiotic free, hormone free, chemical free and preservative free.
Our oil has it good. It gets a second run when we turn it into biodiesel. In the past 12 months we’ve recycled 265,000 litres.
From farm to fingers, our beef and lamb are 100% Australian, grass-fed and free-range, so you can enjoy a natural and flavoursome taste. Gippsland, Southern Tablelands, and Riverina. We like knowing where our meat comes from.
Our burger standards are high. So are our animal welfare standards. Our eggs are free-range, and our chicken is RSPCA Approved.
100% of the paper and cardboard for our takeaway packaging, knife sleeves and Mini Me kids packs is PEFC and FSC Certified. It comes from sustainably planted forests. For every tree cut down, another one gets planted in its place.
Thanks to water-based coatings, our packaging and burger boxes are 100% recyclable. No more petroleum-based chemicals. We always aim to put it in the right bin.
We’re plastic-straw free. Saving 1.6 million black plastic straws from going to landfill each year.
You’re working on your appetite for chips. We’re working on making our chip and dip cups more sustainable. Watch this space.
You’re sitting at a better table. We use recycled finishes in our restaurants wherever possible. Like the bricks in our walls and the timber at your tabletop.
We use a dimming system, which saves 57% of energy needed to light our restaurants. That’ll set the mood.
Energy meters in restaurants are helping us see where our energy goes. We like knowing, so we can plan solutions to use less energy.
The electrical energy in 62 restaurants is now 100% Green and sourced from renewable sources. Watch this space…
In 2019 we kicked off the Meat-Free Monday movement to encourage guests to switch up meat for plant-based on Mondays.
From 2021, in partnership with not-for-profit environmental organisation, Greenfleet, every burger purchased by Relish Members on Tuesdays goes towards planting a native Grill’d forest protected for 100 years.
Our 4,417 employees participated in a survey and nominated "environmental impacts" as a cause closest to their hearts. We’re listening and taking action.
We’re committed to supporting our team members and their own goals with 762 internal promotions in the last 6 months.
It feels good to know things. In the past year, we’ve delivered more than 1 million hours of learning with traineeship programs, leadership courses, and master classes.
We’re learning how to be better; better people, better for the environment, better within our communities, and better to each other.
Our Local Matters program has raised over $6,000,000. Thanks to 35,000 local groups, organisations and projects we have worked with to make a real difference to our local communities. The more hands, the bigger our impact.
As a Relish member through our 8 and Donate program when you choose to donate a meal, we give 100% of the cost to Vinnies. With your help we donate over 12,000 meals a year to those doing it tough in our cities.
We’re fighting the good fight. We’ve worked with non-profit organisations like Vinnies, Red Cross, St Johns, Movember, Polished Man, Surf Life Saving Australia, and the RSPCA.
We get behind our communities when they need support. In 2020, we raised $236,000 in our Bushfire Appeal to provide ongoing support to the communities affected.
