The Restaurant Using Pre-Industrial Food Systems That Everyone Should Be Learning From

The first zero-waste restaurant in the UK, Silo Brighton operates a strict no-waste ethos.

Founded by chef Douglas McMaster, Silo operates through and with a pre industrial food system. They use techniques both modern and ancient. It’s a return to a more primitive diet and style of consumption far more sustainable than what currently is in modern society.

McMaster’s career began in numerous kitchens around the world. We first met the chef at St John, the nose to tail restaurant in London’s Shoreditch. He later went on to work in Australia, where he found direction championing a no-waste ethos through sustainability pioneer Joost Bakker.

The restaurant’s ethos extends to their suppliers, whereby asking farmers to use reusable containers and packaging for goods. They’ve started a movement, which is long overdue.

Silo is already a leader in the industry and is only just getting started.

Committed to the no-waste ethos, everything in the restaurant is made from repurposed materials | Photography Sam Wong©
