The Eaternity-Story

Eaternity is the company developing a comprehensive management solution for the restaurant industry that gives restaurant owners intelligent insights into the supply-chain and enables smart decision-making for the benefit of people, planet and profit. We went public in 2014 but our story goes back to 2008. We are based in Zurich, Switzerland.

Our Goal: To create the future of gastronomy

We aim to provide sustainable menu choices in any restaurant. To do so, we are building the next generation of solutions and services for the food service industry. We streamline the restaurant business and capture the values for today and tomorrow.

Our goal is to give everyone access to climate-friendly meals. For individuals and organisations, Eaternity presents solutions to reduce your food-based environmental impact. The result: global emissions are reduced through simple and delicious measures - longterm.

At Eaternity we are convinced that we can reduce climate-threatening greenhouse gas emissions by half! This is equivalent of 1 ton of CO2 per person per year. That's comparable to driving by car from the north cape (Norway) to Lisboa (Portugal).

Eaternity provides solutions, that are delicous, healthy and sustainable.

Professionals with a passion

Everyone who works at Eaternity interacts with customers on a daily basis. That's why we're especially careful about who we hire. Everyone in our team is genuinely passionate about protecting the planet and wants to share that passion and expertise with others. We work hard to make sure that every member of the team is given the freedom, tools, trust and support needed to carry out excellent work and develop exciting careers. That's why most of us who join Eaternity stay at Eaternity.

How it all has started

2008

The idea for Eaternity was born in November 2008 at the ETH Z├╝rich when Judith Ellens, Eaternity co-founder, won first prize at the ecoworks-workshop for her idea to measure and reduce the impact of food in restaurants. At that time food was widely ignored in discussions on how to reduce our footprint on the planet.

2009

Since then, Eaternity has been working hard to bring this to the attention of key interest groups. After a year of lobbying and hard work, Eaternity launched its first project at one of the ETH canteens at the Science City campus run by SV Group. This project was the first of its kind, and the start of many more great projects to come. The CO2-impact of all the meals offered at the canteen was calculated and the team worked together with the cooks to create and serve the first ever climate-friendly menu in a public restaurant.

2014

After this voluntary work continued under the Eaternity Association, other project requests and media interest began to materialise. We embraced many opportunities (and still do) to reach out to numerous people by giving lectures and interviews, providing materials, organising events, setting up information booths and offering more menu calculations. Based on all these valuable experiences we incorporated (in addition to the Eaternity Association) the Eaternity AG in July 2014. This company supports players in the restaurant industry, providing them with the expertise and tools to turn restaurants into climate heroes.
