How do they get the ice in there? That’s the first question always asked about the kukki cocktail. These fresh fruit cocktails come in a bottle complete with ice cubes and without any chemical ingredients. Founders Josef Klemm, Saif Hamed and Andy Romanowski have launched a small revolution on the European drinks market by replacing artificially made mixed drinks in cans with the fresh fruit cocktails in bottles. With an alcohol content of 10.3% the kukki range includes seven, vegan, gluten-free and, above all, refreshingly delicious cocktail classics. With names like ‘Sex On The Beach’, ‘Boston’, ‘Ladykiller’, ‘Mule’, ‘Mint Passion’, ‘El Presidente’ and ‘Winter Spiced Apple’. All the cocktails are bottled to comply with high European standards at the kukki factory in Berlin.

With the subtropical courtyard, the Café Jakarta restaurant and the Malabar sky bar, Hotel Jakarta Amsterdam takes guests on a journey of discovery where the East and the West merge. An inspiring location where sleeping, eating, drinking, working and relaxation can be found and a meeting place for hotel guests, local residents and Amsterdammers.

Slow Cabins helps city dwellers recharging their batteries while staying in a stand-alone self-sufficient ‘silence hut’ to disconnect and rediscover the simplicity of unspoiled nature nearby ‘home’ (less than two hours’ drive from cities). With this off the grid concept the company wants to reshape the future of housing and hospitality in line with the latest societal and environmental challenges by:

• developing smaller, better and healthier mobile eco houses that are affordable and last longer.
• choosing qualitative (natural) materials, combined with clean ‘minimal impact’ technologies.
• integrating smart multifunctional designs, offering simple but high performances. lees verder

SAVE MORE BREAD! | ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ is even more fanatic in trying to avoid bread waste

13-8-2018

Every single day, more than 400.000 loafs of bread are being thrown away. At ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ (the Second Youth) they think that this is a big waste! That’s why they try to save as much bread as they can, by making the best Supertostis you’ve ever tasted! In October 2016 Manuel and Benjamin opened their first ‘Bread outlet’ at the Jan Evertsenstraat in Amsterdam. Both have been chefs and want to fight food waste. Now they have their own Tostibar at the NDSM-wharf where they sell their Supertosti’s and Crostini. The people from Amsterdam can order their tosti’s at twenty retailers in the city. In total they already saved about 14.000 loafs of bread by now. Their ambition is to give a second life to all leftover bread from the 11 stores of bakery chain BBROOD by the end of 2018. That’s why they started their crowdfunding. lees verder

Ice cream parlors | Trend white paper

13-7-2018

  • IJssalons

The third Sunday of July was designated in the USA as National Ice Cream Day, in fact even July is the Ice Cream Month since 1984. It seems that the those who celebrate this National Day have to thank President Ronald Reagan for it! He wanted to commemorate a treat enjoyed by over 90 percent of the nation’s population and produced by 10% of the nation’s milk supply. When Reagan’s proclamation was officially signed into law, he also called on the U.S. people to pay tribute to ice-cream with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”

This Sunday is ice cream party time! We created a white paper with all the trends we spotted the last couple of years. lees verder
