At Copenhagen Food Collective, we are aware that with 17 restaurants and more than 700,000 guests annually, we have an impact on our surroundings - postive and negative. That's why we work hard to reduce our negative impact - and increase our positive contribution - with the ambition to practise social, economic and environmental responsibility in everything we do.
We live in a time of great climate challenges and we believe that we all have a responsibility to influence the climate in a positive direction. At the same time, we want to be an active driving force and contribute to sustainable solutions. Therefore, we work from specific areas where we seek to ensure change that benefits everyone, through small and large scale actions.

We Have Planted Trees
From 2018-2021, we have planted trees in Tanzania and Mexico by donating to organisations working to establish ecosystems and sustainable forestry and agriculture in the Usambara Mountains of Tanzania and Veracruz, Mexico respectively. Together with our guests, we donated a total of 1,070,772 DKK, equivalent to 118,975 trees.
Sustainability in our restaurants starts with the choice of what we put on our plates. We're conscious of the climate impact of each ingredient, and it matters to us where the raw materials come from and how they've been made. We also work actively each day to reduce unnecessary food waste.
Cofoco Supports Locally
In 2004 we opened our first restaurant in Vesterbro, and ever since we have been a regular part of the local communities around Copenhagen. We see it as our responsibility to contribute positively to our surroundings, and therefore we regularly support organisations and initiatives that aim to make a difference for people in local communities.
