Food Wave for Earth Day: the challenge

Food Wave launches a new and exciting challenge for the Earth Day 2022.

Let’s play with one of the most popular dishes: the poke. The poke has a varied composition of ingredients and is mostly based on fish, vegetables and rice. It is a super delicious dish but in its preparation, often involves the use of ingredients from long supply chains, which therefore have a significant impact considering the production and transport, as the report drafted by Està highlights.

This is the challenge: create your own sustainable poke bowl and show us that it can be both tasty and good for the planet!
