Passion
Proximity
Commitment

Our staff is epicurean

Because we believe that those who can appreciate the finer things in life, can promise the best flavors and an unparalleled welcome to our guests. We are proud to do our job differently, to offer a genuine experience by ensuring that each moment spent with us is both an exchange and a pleasure.
To us, hospitality is expressed as much in the preparation of the dishes, as it is in the service of them. This is why we attach such great importance to the training of our employees — be it hard knowledge or soft skills. Come discover Novae’s top-notch sense of hospitality!

Our entourage is precious

The importance of proximity applies to us continuously and on several levels. Our unique purchasing model champions short distances by favoring local and ultra-local suppliers. We cultivate a real relationship with your organization and guests, to find a balance between their expectations and your objectives.
Proximity is also experienced internally; our teams are our most precious assets, which is why we offer them a healthy and secure work environment in which they can evolve and progress.

Our CSR policy is rigorous

In fact, it guides our every move. We are particularly sensitive to the fight against food waste and strive to use all goods entirely — from stem to root for vegetables, and from head to tail for meats — to reduce our environmental impact.
We have also established a list of forbidden foods, whether for nutritional or environmental reasons. Finally, acting in a committed manner means raising our guests’ awareness of our CSR and the nutritional challenges of gastronomy.

«Working with Novae is a way of forging a link between the terroir, gastronomy, and regional businesses. Offering niche products -- such as buffalo milk dairy products in Novae establishments -- highlights our region, assures customers of product traceability and quality, and raises our profile on a wider scale. Novae's establishments know perfectly well how to bring out the best in our products by enhancing them in the kitchen, which motivates us even more to continue our partnership that has already lasted almost 3 years. .»
