The FLO is a family friendly café open to all, a social space where members of the community can come together and enjoy delicious locally sourced food.
The team behind the FLO is led by William Pouget the founder of the Vaults and Garden café (voted 'The Most Sustainable Restaurant in Oxfordshire 2016). Central to the vision for the café is the desire to promote ecological sustainability and make use of the best locally sourced seasonal ingredients. We aim to achieve this by:
'Sourcing local, organic and ethically produced goods and ingredients'
We are careful to choose our ingredients based on where they are coming from rather than price, to minimise our carbon footprint. We are also passionate about using local suppliers wherever possible and have key partnerships across Oxfordshire.
We also try and stay away from microwave ovens, Teflon coatings, plastic utensils and short-life or toxic equipment.
'No Waste Catering'
From menu planning, recipe formulation, purchasing, food preparation, portioning & service. We aim & train our staff in ways to minimise wastage of ingredients & food, allowing us to use more expensive organic produce without raising our prices.
We recycle everything possible including all cardboard, glass, paper and most plastic. Our dream is to legally & economically compost all our biodegradable waste and we know it's going to come true soon!
'Promoting healthy detox living'
In a modern world where diets are often unsuited to lifestyles and metabolic needs, we can end up feeling like a wreck. At the FLO we choose our ingredients, develop our recipes and plan our menus with a view to creating healthy & nutritionally balanced options that will appeal to broad range of people, also accommodating special dietary needs.
Our food contains no MSG, minimal sugar, minimal oil and no artificial ingredients.
'Stimulate discussion and promote awareness of individual and social well-being and ecological issues'
At FLOs, like our other cafés, we host socially, ecologically and culturally inspired events along with Community events.
We hope to see you at the FLO sometime in the future,
The FLO team
