Environmental stewardship runs throughout Dupar & Company. Our extensive environmental sustainability program is a priority initiative for both Lisa Dupar Catering and Pomegranate Bistro.
Focus on Local Organic Farmers & Purveyors: We work with over 40 local farmers and food purveyors to acquire products that are certified organic and have a much lower impact on our environment, including: Willie Green’s Organic Produce (Monroe), Full Circle Farms (Fall City), King’s Produce (Okanogan), Theo Chocolate (Seattle), Caffe Lusso Coffee (Redmond).
Focus on Sustainable, Fresh, Peak Season Ingredients: We strive to purchase all produce during peak season to lessen the environmental impact. We also made a concerted effort to only purchase seafood that has been determined “eco-friendly” by the Environmental Defense Fund. We use no preservatives, chemicals or trans fats in our cooking, and we make our own sausages, breads, pastries, crackers, sauces and dressings from scratch.
Focus on Composting & Recycling: For catering events that require disposable service wear, we offer biodegradable to-go packaging. Following all events, our team composts and recycles everything possible, which includes cooking oil recycled for biodiesel. In 2010, Lisa Dupar Catering was awarded the Waste Management award for “Best Recycle-compost Program” in Redmond.
