From day one, we challenged ourselves to minimise the environmental impact at Wahaca. We were the first UK restaurant group to be certified as Carbon Neutral and we are proud members of the Food Made Good (The sustainable restaurant association), who focus on three key areas to measure sustainability; environment, sourcing and society.
We’re pretty proud of what we’re doing in each of these areas, so let us show you just how we make fresh, vibrant, Mexican-inspired street food that doesn’t cost the earth.

We are carbon neutral!
We take lots of steps to minimise the resources we use across our restaurants, from the initial build, to using heat produced by our fridges to heat our water! To be completely carbon neutral we also offset our unavoidable energy use, by supporting some pretty amazing projects out in Mexico.
STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE
We can all have a positive impact on the planet simply through the food we choose to eat and we want to make that as easy as possible for you.
Our menu is over 50% veg, as much as possible is from local suppliers and we add seasonal specials to the menu throughout the year. We use British free-range chicken and pork, grass-fed beef and sustainable British fish to make sure our meat dishes are delicious and better for the planet.
ONE BIG FAMILEE
People are at the heart of Wahaca. From our founders Tommi & Mark, to the people of Oaxaca in Mexico, our teams in our restaurants and of course our customers too.
We take a whole lot of inspiration from all of them and do our best to give a whole lot of inspiration back through projects and charities, especially to inspire the next generation.
