At Gokudo, we are deeply committed to sustainability and recognize the importance of responsible sourcing for our sushi ingredients. We strive to make conscious choices that not only benefit our customers but also have a positive impact on the environment. Here are some of the sustainability practices we have in effect:
We place great importance on selecting suppliers who share our commitment to sustainability. We work closely with trusted partners who adhere to responsible fishing practices and support sustainable aquaculture. By sourcing fish from those who harvest it sustainably, we contribute to the preservation of marine ecosystems and help maintain healthy fish populations.
Seasonal and Local Ingredients:
We prioritize using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. This approach not only ensures the freshest flavors but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with long-distance transportation. By supporting local suppliers and farmers, we actively contribute to the local economy and promote sustainable agricultural practices.
Ethical and Traceable Supply Chain:
We strive to maintain a transparent and traceable supply chain. By carefully tracking the origins of our ingredients, we can ensure that they are sourced responsibly and meet our sustainability standards. This enables us to provide our customers with the peace of mind that they are enjoying sushi made from ethically harvested seafood.
We are mindful of the impact of packaging waste on the environment. To minimize our ecological footprint, we utilize sustainable packaging materials that are either biodegradable, compostable, or recyclable. We continually explore innovative packaging solutions that align with our commitment to sustainability.
Educating and Empowering Guests:
We believe in the power of education and strive to inform our guests about the importance of sustainable seafood choices. Through our menus, signage, and knowledgeable staff, we aim to raise awareness about the significance of selecting sustainable options and making environmentally conscious dining decisions.
By implementing these sustainability practices, we aim to contribute to the well-being of our planet and preserve the abundance of marine resources. We are dedicated to continuously improving our practices, seeking out new ways to minimize our environmental impact, and promoting a sustainable future for sushi consumption.
Thank you for choosing Gokudo, where we not only provide delicious sushi but also strive to make a positive difference in our environment through our sustainability initiatives.
