goodbye to plastic
Another of the company’s goals is to create a trend within the food industry regarding deplastification. As part of a strategic and transversal plan that pursues this goal, it has taken unprecedented measures that have a drastic impact on the reduction of single-use plastics, with a vision that seeks to support and deepen the progress achieved. To achieve this, he has declared plastics his “enemy # 1” and all his decisions take into account the environmental, economic and social impact.
The Club de la Milanesa will add a new concept of fast food.
In this sense, some of the new franchises (Puerto Madero, Mendoza, Alto Avellaneda and Unicenter) will have a new format, called Club de la Milanesa +: the first Milanese fast food in the worldand also the pioneer in not using plastic in the region, who will work under the motto “eat guilt free, eat plastic free”.
This new format is based on three characteristics: simpler (it has a reduced menu and suitable for eating without cutlery), faster (fast food mode) and more busy (plastic-free).
