Ep. 44 Matt Whiley & Evan Stroeve (Re-)
Listen now
Setting a landmark bar that strives to change the conceptions of waste was never going to be easy. It relies on ingenuity, passion, patience and making a lot of mistakes. No different to whenever you strive to do something good. But when you have two experienced and forward thinking people at the helm of it all, you can only expect the best. From using the whole mango, including dehydrating the seeds to add bitterness to cocktails, to using the pulp after juicing, for vinegars and kombuchas. The out of the box thinking here is one of a kind, but also incredibly necessary. They are aiming to be completely zero waste in the next few years, and with having recently been rated the 46th best bar in the world by Worlds 50 Best, it’s clear that Matt Whiley and his right hand man, Evan Stroeve, are on the right path. So it was great to sit down and chat about sustainability in a hospitality context. Hope you enjoy this episode! The Roots Hospitality podcast is proudly supported by Sydney Direct Fresh Produce.
