"Why We Choose Beans!?"

Eurest Portugal is a catering company by Compass Group, which operates in Portugal for more than 40 years.
As a market leader, we believe that the impact we have on our Partners, Customers and Clients must be guided by a high degree of social responsibility, sustainability and environmental awareness.
We have developed new concepts, with a strong focus on Portuguese cuisine and products, believing that our investment in this behaviour is fundament to achieve a balance between economic development and its social and environmental impact.
Educating our consumers on the benefits of legume is a sustainable approach by which we aim to increase the consumption of legumes in our restaurants, this is a clear global commitment with sustainability.
Our project “Choose Beans” helped to increase legume consumption frequency in our restaurants.  We established a monthly meal plan, with a daily legume grain dish and with the help of marketing actions, our team of nutritionists, show cooking sessions, recipes contests and eBooks editions we were able to increase our consumption of legumes and have a more active participation of our Teams, Clients and Consumers and better food options that fit into a more health-conscious lifestyle.
