Fantastic food that doesn't cost the earth

At Tribe Kitchen, our mission is to transform eating in Edinburgh and deliver delicious food to customers hungry for variety whilst also helping local, independent restaurants flourish.

And it’s really important to us that we do this in a sustainable way.

We believe in doing business responsibly and in having a positive impact on our communities and the planet.

Here are some of the steps we take to minimise our environmental footprint.

We prepare and cook all our food in our state of the art, high tech commercial kitchen in North Edinburgh. In fact, it’s so high-tech, that’s why we call it our ‘Smart Kitchen’. It’s precisely this set up that allows for our unique multi-restaurant ordering system, for our talented team of chefs to prepare and package food from all our menus and to swiftly deliver them safely to you at home.

Within this, we have a recipe management tool which allows us to track quantities of raw materials, finished and semi-finished items for all our menus. A built-in ordering system means our kitchen is never over stocked, reducing food wastage, and is also never short on supplies.

Our food packaging is biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. It looks great too! We use Vegware which is made from plants using renewable, lower carbon recycled or reclaimed materials and Colpac packaging, an award-winning British manufacturer of sustainable food packaging.

We have our own delivery team and our own fleet of Tribe e-scooters and e-bikes for our drivers. Since our scooters are electric with changeable batteries, they’re never off road when needed!

We aim to be the best employer in this business, offering flexible, competitively paid work to our drivers. They’ll earn rewards for delivering our orders quickly and efficiently and we will provide the scooters, protective clothing, helmets, lights and full insurance. Everything they need to deliver our food to happy households all over Edinburgh!
