WE VALUE UNITY. IT’S WHAT ENABLES US TO WORK AND MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER.
It requires the sharing of knowledge and objectives, solidarity between teams and within Novae’s virtuous ecosystem, and trust.
SUPPORTING LOCAL PRODUCERS
Novae has been supporting local producers since 2016 in the form of micro-credits allocated to selected projects. This support fund keeps evolving, thanks to the partnership established in 2020 with Yes We Farm — the first Swiss crowdfunding platform dedicated to agriculture and food.

Reducing our ecological impact at all levels
Our purchasing department works day after day to make purchases as local as possible with 70% of our fresh produce coming either from custom-made channels or from purchases less than 200 km away.
We also optimize delivery logistics and the search for alternatives to disposable packaging.
