Activities, atmosphere, & culinary adventures for your team or clients
From an intimate 20 person long lunch to a 500 person corporate event to creative team meetups, the EdibleSwitzerland Foodies team will help create an experience to remember.
We partner with local producers, chefs, farmers, artists, vintners, brewmasters, educators, and more to create a memorable event or team gathering
Remote teams? Looking to ditch the zoom meetings and reconnect with your team in person?
As remote working company, team gatherings are becoming core to company culture. They enable us to connect, welcome new members, share ideas, reflect, and learn from each other. And of course, they are the perfect opportunity for adventure!
Gatherings foster team spirit, improve collaboration, productivity and the overall happiness of everyone.
You want the best for your business, but have a real job to do. What better way to create a great meetup than to work with a network of local professionals to create a unique a memorable experience.
We are a Swiss-wide network of food lovers, caterers, cooking workshops, educators, we are connected to some cool chefs and even amateur chefs, producers, brewmasters, beer sommeliers, wine sommeliers, olive oil sommeliers, coffee master roasters, vintners, artists and more.
Between us, we create amazing group experiences.
THE HEALTHY RESET YOUR TEAM HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR
Team away days and yearly gatherings, with a twist — of lemon & awesome sauce!
Are you planning to disconnect from tech and reconnect with your team? Do you want to create a team offsite to reflect about the disruption from this last year and make plans for the coming year?
We work with a network of professionals in Switzerland (and sometimes abroad) to help you make plan for success: Leadership workshops, strategic planning, team building in locations including Suisse Romande, Suisse Allemande, the Swiss Alps or France. We work with a network of eco lodges, chalets, and modern Airbnbs to find the right lodging facilities.
If you were planning such an offsite and wanted to incorporate foodie experiences, we can find the right caterers (someone to come along with you and make the food for your team).
Maybe, you want to incorporate some creative cooking classes as the team building activity. A bake off? A cook off? A cocktail making class. Then, the next day, balance it with yoga or hiking (even skiing & snowboarding).
The possibilities are endless.

At EdibleSwitzerland, we are committed to practising sustainable tourism, running zero waste experiences, events, & tours, and giving back to our community.

We are committed to serving the local economy. Quite literally, we serve local ingredients (be it honey, meat, vegetables, and other artisan products) paired with local wines and other beverages and artisan products.
We minimise waste through avoidance, reduction, recycling and separate disposal.
At our dining events, we use upcycled plates, cloth napkins, real cups, glasses, and cutlery.
We encourage public transportation to and from events and experiences.
We work with local businesses & guides to provide alternative transportation eBikes, electric tuk-tuks, and other interesting tours and options to move people around. Be it offering guided tours, or tastings, or just an interpretive hike.
Additionally, we work with a partner agency to provide green energy for lights and sound (especially for outdoor events).
Supporting community: A portion of our proceeds goes towards creating a fund to help small food businesses launch and grow their business (be them actual food products, experiences, cooking classes, tours, or others) or specific charities.
