Copia Green, Part of Master Chefs Group is an award-winning innovative, health-driven and flavour focused eatery based in Castletroy, Limerick.
Our mission is simple and clear. To create and serve inspiring vibrant sweet & savoury dishes bursting with flavour and nourishing in nutrients. To make it onto our menu each ingredient needs to be organic, seasonal or sustainable.
We consciously serve a seasonal menu supporting and championing Irish Food producers. We prioritise sustainability by being mindful not only about what we put on our plates, but with every purchasing decision we make. We source our ingredients ethically and actively implement a zero waste program. We strive to be transparent in everything we do and put education at the front line of our business.
We aim to use 75% organic and Irish produce throughout the year. All our dishes are influenced by the seasons focusing on a plant-based lifestyle with options to cater for organic carnivores, vegans and everyone in between.
We source our meats from organic Irish farmers. We only use organic Irish eggs and dairy. Our fish is sustainably sourced. We don’t use refined or hydrogenated oils, refined sugars, bleached flour, additives or preservatives. We don’t cook with butter.
We ferment. We preserve. We soak. We sprout. We brew. We burp. We activate. We innovate. We educate. We attempt to reduce the amount of waste we produce as much as possible and strive to be a zero-waste business.
