Picadeli has achieved considerable success with its healthy, fresh salads plated in their famous green bowls. Well, the green bowl is about to get even greener as Picadeli is rethinking the way they package their products to reduce their carbon footprint.

Many of the Covid-19 effects on our business have been mitigated thanks to an increased focus on experimentation, flexibility and swifter decision-making. At Greenfood, we’ve put a lot of effort into intra-group collaboration, augmenting while focusing our product portfolio and starting to form our comeback plans already in the beginning of the crises...while staying nimble. This approach took us through the toughest times of Covid-19. And with strong growth regained across our group as well as with more than 150 reopened salad bars every week, we’ve definitely left some of the toughest times behind us...for now.
