Sustainable indulgence in Berlin: We are opening our first deli with dishes made from surplus food. The Deli by SPRK is part of the concept to redistribute and process surplus food in order to protect resources and the climate.

Together with LHIND Lufthansa Industry Solutions we are working on the digital platform to better distribute food surplus from the supply chain and conserve resources.
