    This interest is well received by “clean-eating restaurants”, which have popped up through recent years in every major city, starting with Berlin. Whether they are stylish and metropolitan like „Laura’s Dehli“(2015) in Düsseldorf, or well thought-out and “green” even up to the wall decoration, such as „Edelgrün“(2017) in Cologne.

    The success proves them right. People stand in line for their fresh salads, bowls or smoothies. The combination of organic and functional food paired with global health and style trends matches the German consumer needs perfectly.
