What separates an eco pizza business from a traditional one? The sustainability practices go beyond the actual building.

Chef Edward Sylvia of Certé, the famed Midtown caterer, first got interested in eco-friendly food preparation for his children, “I didn't want to be responsible for leaving a mess to my kids.” Always a fan of the slow food movement, he also saw the impact processed foods is having on the younger generations.

After 2 years of intensive planning (the dough recipe took a year alone), Chef Sylvia is elated to bring NYC a delicious, fresh product that minimizes our impact on the environment. To sum it up, we are really just trying to “do the right thing.”
