‘Strong minded café and canteen operations is sustainable and spacious,
saturated by quality and service’

EUROPA: CAFÉS, CANTEENS AND COFFEE ROASTERY

Since we opened Café Europa 1989 more than 30 years ago, our interest in the world around us has become a part of our DNA. We involve ourselves in culture, the local environment as well as developmental projects that strengthen the quality of what we serve and the way we work.

The story behind our canteens

In the beginning of 1993, the Ministry of Environment relocated and situated themselves in Højbro Plads in the heart of Copenhagen. They had no canteen nor catering for meetings, therefore they approached us asking for help. And just like that, we served the first Europa coffee to the minister in the ministry’s meeting room 5 minutes later…

Since then, our business has grown to the point where we now operate 33 canteens all around Denmark and serve lunch to 15.000 people each and every day. Every canteen has its own tailored contract, which is suited to accommodate their needs for service, meals and menus. That said, it is also a result of our notions on health, organic commodities, animal welfare and sustainability that drive these partnerships.

To put it simply, it is love for the delicate seasonal commodities, the delightful taste and great food on a daily basis that makes up our canteens. It is a place to relax, enjoy and create new positive energies in an otherwise hectic work day.

Good coffee is our soft spot

For us, coffee is a passion. We have developed biodynamic café-milk for the whole restaurant industry, been to Latin America to optimize our quality of coffee and ensure that the farmers are paid the rightful amount for their efforts and opened our own coffee roastery in Gellerup, where the local community are hired as part of our production team.

‘It makes sense to us, when business development, quality, environment and people are aligned’
