- Participation in shared green energy program.
- Compost program for all kitchen and food service areas within the company.
- Use of more efficient low demand refrigeration units.
- Use of recycled and found lumber in new store furniture and fixtures.
- Overall friendly environment to animal products produced in a humane method.
- Thriving and growing organic department.
Gourmet Garage is committed to selling only cage-free or better eggs. We are beginning this process now and expect to have a 100% cage-free egg selection by mid- October 2017
