Frequently Asked Questions

I notice that your menu changes from time to time. Why ?

Code Vert’s menu must adapt to seasons, as we favor local sourcing whenever possible. Thus, depending on the harvest and the availability of products, some recipes must be adapted.

What is a vegan menu?

A vegan establishment will NEVER serve food and products containing meat, poultry, fish and seafood, eggs, milk or honey. Food additives derived from by-products of animal origin are also excluded.

A vegan diet consists of fruits, vegetables, legumes (lentils, beans and peas), whole grains (oats, rice, quinoa), soy (tofu, tempeh), nuts and seeds.

What distinguishes organic farming from conventional agriculture?

Products stemming from organic farming are grown in respect of natural biodiversity, soil health and natural ecosystems.

Soils in cultivation are fertilized with composts, green and natural fertilizers. Weeding is done manually and mechanically – no herbicides.

In Quebec, products bearing the organic label must be certified by an independent organization and traced from the farm to the consumer.

Code Vert ensures that all food products used in its establishment are certified.

What is a fair trade product?

When a product is labeled Fair Trade, it has been certified by an independent organization to ensure that it truly originates from sustainable production and marketing.

Fair trade provides decent compensation to small producers in other countries – often marginalized – enabling them to develop their business in the long term, as well as improving their standard of living.
