The Credo of Cassava
Globally Influenced - Locally Sourced
We heard there's a problem with the way we consume, we listened.
We have seen the huge scale problems caused socially, economically and environmentally by the current food system.
Produce Led - Full Traceability
We work with local ethical growers that practice methods that encourage healthy soils and biodiversity. We believe in keeping traditions alive and know that this produce provides increased nutrition to our bodies.
Except for the Herbalife Products nothing here at CASSAVA is imported from beyond Indonesia, this cuts food miles, over processing, the use of preservatives and ensures optimum freshness. Therefore you won't find wheat or almonds on our menus.
These apparent limitations become fuel for creativity and we believe the final product is superior, crafted with integrity, respecting our environment, the produce, and the nourishment of our bodies.
For example, in an effort to not import wheat, as we heard how this has negatively impacted agriculture in Indonesia, we have found that cassava flour makes a far superior loaf, delicious, light and full of nutrients, it contains no gluten, in fact its gut friendly as is full of prebiotics. By using this product we're supporting a local business and local farmers who share our ethics and our network grows.
In fact, we have found cassava to be the solution to most of our challenges,
hence the name. A nutrient dense, super versatile plant that is not only sustainable but actually regenerative!
Waste - Reduce Reuse Recycle
We take deliveries in bulk in reusable crates, bottles and jars.
Apart from our bakery items, everything is made in house. Including Jams, Nut butters, Granolas. This way we ensure there are no nasties.
No processed sugar, no MSG, no excess packaging.
Veggie scraps and Plate scrapings are used as animal feed and compost.
