Better Burger is turning the New Zealand fast food industry on its head by proving that a profitable quick service restaurant can be run sustainably. It believes it is the only fast food chain in Australasia to use 100% plant-based compostable packaging for consumer products. It arranges collection and delivery of waste from restaurants to a commercial composting facility to complete the cycle.
In a notoriously resource hungry industry, Better Burger business has made leaps and bounds towards reducing waste to landfill. It diverts hundreds of thousands of items that would otherwise go to landfill. In a commitment to sustainable practices, it has educated and pushed suppliers toward sustainable practices as well. Since its inception, sustainability has been a part of Better Burger’s core values, and is always one of the first factors considered in business decisions.
