Made Blue ambassadors win Gaia Green Awards

How proud we can be! No fewer than three hospitality ambassadors of Made Blue were nominated for the Gaia Green Awards this year and two of them went home with a total of three prizes! View the winners here.

Beach club birds

On Tuesday, September 22, 2020, the Gaia Green Awards were presented for the fifth time in Rotterdam Ahoy during the network meeting of Gastvrij Rotterdam. The Gaia Green Awards are awards for catering companies in the Netherlands and Belgium that stand out in the field of sustainability.

Beachclub BIRDS from The Hague not only won in the Beach Pavilions category, but also received the ‘Falco Eleonora Award 2020’. This award is presented to catering locations that excel in the field of sustainable Food & Beverage.

Noorderlicht cafe

The Public Prize went to Noorderlicht Café from Amsterdam. They received no less than 22.5% of the public votes!

Elise Moeskops from Lastage unfortunately just missed the title ‘Wine woman of the year’ but still serves the best water for the world of course!

COVID-19 has an enormous impact on the catering sector, but has also ensured that catering locations have taken a close look. Sustainability as a distinctive character is becoming increasingly important in this.
