Tremendous Value

If you want to save the planet – well don’t we all – then fine, but please don’t think that buying carrots from Peru and drinking Innocent juice is the answer. But if I must be ethical when choosing a restaurant then I’ll choose an independent, which uses local suppliers, to assuage my guilt. Independents can’t squeeze their suppliers with their spending power, or hide their profits away in tax havens. They are part of the region they operate in and the name on the door is of the person responsible. Therefore, if there’s an independent near you doing the business then enter guilt free and munch away. Opus is one such guilt free eatery, with a market menu which offers tremendous value.
