Sustainability in every bite.
We’re always pushing to do right by the environment and create a better future, one delicious burger at a time. Whether that’s trailblazing new science for better burgs, moving to GreenPower, partnering with small farmers and artisan makers, donating to local causes or championing animal welfare, we’re leading the way in sustainability for our producers, community and planet.
We’ve found the best ingredients that Australia’s backyard has to offer, from Echuca-grown tomatoes and beetroot born in Bundaberg to local beef from Gippsland, Southern Tablelands and Riverina. Check it out.
Our burger standards are high. So are our animal welfare standards. Our beef, lamb and chicken are 100% Australian, antibiotic free, hormone free, chemical free and preservative free. Our eggs are free-range with only 1500 hens per hectare. And our chickens? RSPCA Approved since 2016.
Plant-based? No problem. From getting to know Garden Goodness to doing the Impossible™, we’ve searched far and wide to ensure that we serve you, our lil veggie-mites, the best plant-based alternatives on the market.
We're passionate about Australian family businesses, so we source our dairy products from locals like Meredith Dairy.
Baked and delivered fresh to our restaurants, our buns are free from refined sugar, artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Our Traditional and Panini buns are made with a living leaven (or starter culture) that gives them a unique taste that’s exclusively ours.
Our flaky salt comes from Olsson’s, an Aussie family business that uses a 100% natural evaporative process for sustainable seasonings.
We source our olive oil from Cobram Estate, an Australian owned olive farm with just 0.5% of operation outputs ending up in landfill PLUS a commitment to biodiversity and sustainable land use.
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. We’re also plastic-straw free.
We’ve currently got 64 restaurants that purchase GreenPower, a government accredited renewable energy product, with another 14 to come.
Our used restaurant cooking oil is taken away and recycled into biodiesel.
We have a unique way of making our patties so we need to work with the best in the game. Positive Proteins share our love for premium patties and sustainability – they've opted for 100% GreenPower for their production facility.
In 2019 we kicked off the Meat-Free Monday movement to encourage guests to switch up meat for plant-based on Mondays.
Not too long ago, we took a pledge to introduce 10 native forests that would be protected for the next 100 years. Thanks to Greenfleet, Australia's first carbon offset provider, we’ve managed to reach this goal – and we’re not stopping yet!
Our Local Matters program has raised over $7,000,000. 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. On top of this, we also close 5 restaurants across Australia once a month, to feed those doing it tough in our cities. Our combined efforts have meant that we have donated over 55,000 meals so far.
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.
