VIDEO REPORTAGE

Soup & Bakery by De Verspillingsfabriek is a new food outlet and a partnership between HMSHost, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and Hutten Catering’s De Verspillingsfabriek. HSMHost manages the concept’s daily operations. Since February 2019, travellers passing through the Netherland’s biggest airport can enjoy soups including tomato soup and pea soup. The soups are prepared using discarded vegetables, by workers who are disadvantaged on the labour market

Besides soups, customers can also order sausage rolls, biscuits, muffins and brownies from Hutten Catering’s Zorgbakkerij. This bakery also focuses on sustainability and craftsmanship. The products are prepared using less sugar, less salt and healthier fats. The bakery doesn’t waste any talent either, because it employs bakers with hearing impediments

NO SOCIAL WASTE

Ad Willemsen, General Manager of HMSHost Schiphol, says: “I think I speak on behalf of all the parties involved when I say we’re extremely proud of our latest hospitality location at Schiphol. We can bring about genuine change by joining forces. This new project enables us to demonstrate that we don’t waste food or talent, but rather we use both to create new products.”

REALISING IMPROVEMENTS

Bob Hutten, owner and founder of Hutten Catering and De Verspillingsfabriek: “This is such a great example of how it’s possible to combine social, circular and commercial interests. We need initiatives like this to show that things can be done differently. Genuine partnerships. I hope our message reaches lots of people and of course I hope travellers will discover that our soups and bakery products are totally delicious.”
