Year in Review 2018 – PPS by the numbers!

Yes, it’s the PPS Year in Review 2018! Before we jump into 2019, let’s forget the resolutions and savour some of the really good things from 2018. By good things of course we mean pizza!

PPS Wins EcoStar Award

As a restaurant, a commitment to sustainability should be the rule, not the exception. At Prima Strada, it’s one of our core values be respectful to our customers, team, products, community and especially our environment. We also make really really good wood-fired pizza.

We are honoured to receive the “Greenest Restaurant” award at the 2018 EcoStar Awards, presented by Synergy Enterprises

The EcoStar Awards acknowledge outstanding environmental consideration, leadership and achievements by individuals, organizations and businesses in and around the Victoria area. 

As we initially read through the list of local finalists, we couldn’t help but remark that we were in great company. We’re flattered to have made the list and thrilled to be considered a leader in the food and beverage industry. 

There’s always more to be done.  With a mandate to relentlessly strive for improvement, we will continue to improve as a community partner and business.  Grazie mille!

PPS also won the 2018 Golden Garbage Award (we picked up the most trash in YYJ’s Earth Day competition!) and have previously won the Greenest Restaurant award in 2015 (EcoStar).
