About Roots Radicals

Based in Berlin, Germany, Roots Radicals is an authentic, handcrafted, and zero-waste food company that aims to reconnect people with food.

Food is a vehicle of values, culture, and identity. It builds communities. It has the power to change us, reconnect us, and raise our consciousness and awareness. At Roots Radicals we want to bring the idea of the ‘production kitchen’ to our community, by eventually creating a hub in Berlin: an open kitchen, food store, and Café. We believe that showing all processes of how our food is prepared will offer a window to reconnect to a process we sadly no longer experience. 
 
Community, education, information and transparency are fundamental to us. Care, time, and love are our added ingredients, as we believe that they carry the magic and wisdom needed to channel lost traditions.
 
Roots Radicals is taking part in the fight against food waste! We believe in the Circular Economy, and we cook focusing highly on efficiency, zero-waste, and upcycling. Through culinary innovation we create new products and processes that help us design the so-called “waste” out of the food system: we upcycle rescued food into delicious products and we also upcycle from our own processes. 

Find below a display of some of our products, available for purchase at our online store. We constantly innovate and create new products that can be also found at our Saturday market stand at Markthalle Neun in Kreuzberg, Berlin.
With a seasonal, regional, and cultural focus, our products are mostly long-lasting conserves such as pickles, ferments, sauces, soups, vinegar, fruit preserves, and spices. All delicious products suitable for day-to-day cooking as well as for special occasions. We look to inspire and empower people into changing habits of consumption by shifting our participation from a ‘throw-away’ economy to participation in a ‘circular economy’. 
 
Roots Radicals conducts the effort of our team in transitioning from competition to cooperation, from manipulation to emergence, from hiding and over-protecting to sharing. We are part of the change we want to see in the world. To stay in touch and receive the latest news from our process please consider subscribing to our mailing list.
