The need for proper nutrition to sustain health and your immune system has never been more paramount.

What to expect.
Our food identity is rooted in Nordic tradition with Indo-Asian influences. Our colourful menus are plant-powered with a strong focus on seasonality and local sourcing. They are packed full of fibres, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, plant proteins and complex carbs. They provide optimal nutrition for well-being, energy and high productivity. We respect individual choice so well-sourced meat and fish are optional add-ons in healthy, planet-friendly portions. Below you can see a couple examples of our varied team lunch menus.

What our friends say.
Employee Experience Manager, AIRBNB HQ LONDON
Thanks for a brilliant experience. It
was all I imagined and more! The team were so happy and you could feel an elevation of energy in the room. The food was superb - even better than described.
Sustainability Coordinator, WAITROSE & PARTNERS
Amazing food, with such a powerful philosophy behind. Our team have been raving about it since!
is to empower YOU to make a positive difference by making better food choices.
Our philosophy is simple: Eat like a bear. Why bears? Because the bear eats mostly plant. She’s never heard of ‘seasonal’ or ‘local’, yet she eats nothing else. And she doesn’t eat all the highly processed foods and factory farmed meat that are destroying our health and the planet. ‘Eat like a bear’ serves as a gentle guideline for making healthier and more planet-friendly food choices whilst respecting individual preferences, food cultures and traditions. Join the movement and help change the world by changing the way we eat.
Beyond a plate of food
It’s inclusive. Brings people together around the pleasure of a good meal, regardless of personal preferences.
It’s easy. Saves time and avoids stress for the person in charge of organising.
It’s story-telling. Raises your brand profile by showing that you care for your people and for the planet.
It’s healthy and energising. Increases well-being, boosts energy and productivity and brings joy.
Who we are
We are two fellow Danes who had a serendipitous meeting of minds in London. Both of us have an unwavering determination to make a positive difference in the world. We founded The Bear Kitchen to help raise awareness about the importance of food choices for joy, for health and for the future of our planet and humanity. With love, Jens & Michael
