Boulder, Colorado • September 12th, 2018—SALT and Wild Standard has been recognized for its role in promoting good food and sustainable food systems with two links on the annual Good Food 100 Restaurants List from the Good Food Media Network.
“We are honored to be recognized and we hope to spread the infectious nature of quality, sustainable food to others.,” said Chef Bradford, Owner of Wild Standard, SALT and Colterra.
The Good Food 100 Restaurants list is carefully curated based on the quantitative measurement of participating restaurants’ self-reported annual food purchasing data. Restaurants are rated with two to six links—symbolizing links in the food chain—based on the percent of total good food purchases. These purchases support state, regional and national good food producers and purveyors.
“Food is better when it’s fulfilling, not just filling,” said Sara Brito, co-founder and president, Good Food Media Network. “Transparency in food sourcing is an increasingly important issue. By offering a snapshot of what happens behind kitchen doors and restaurants’ commitment to sustainable purchasing practices, the Good Food 100 holds chefs accountable and instills consumer confidence so eaters are empowered to make the best possible dining decisions. Congratulations to all the 2018 Good Food 100 Restaurants. We look forward to continuing our collective mission of creating a good food system for all.”
Wild Standard opened in September of 2015 and provides a casual yet stylish atmosphere, ideal for families, friendly get-togethers and large groups. Owned by renowned chef and farm-to-table trailblazer, Bradford Heap, from SALT Bistro and Colterra the restaurant focuses on providing guests with seasonal, sustainable, humanely-raised food with flavors that showcase the best of what the season has to offer.
SALT Bistro, our long-standing American Bistro restaurant shares a similar philosophy. SALT Bistro carries Authentic. Fresh. Local & Seasonal. Bright fruits. Vibrant vegetables. Lively herbs & Natural meats. Menus that honor the ingredients. Long-standing friendships with local farmers, ranchers and purveyors yield abundant flavor!
Additionally, a corresponding economic report conducted by the Business Research Division of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder on behalf of the Good Food Media Network, found that the overall food purchases of the 125 participating restaurants totaled $120.1 million. Of this, restaurants reported domestic spending $80.1 million on good food, which translates to a $255 million economic impact on the national good food economy.
