Improving the quality of our service
In addition to responsible and sustainable tourism, our idea was to increase the quality of service.
Lunches served in nature were then and nowadays primarily soups. So we needed durable cooking plates for the washing machine instead of disposable containers. There was, of course, a simple solution to this: typical ceramic plates. We had to find the dishes that we could package sensibly. After a bit of mediation, we had containers and stackable sealable packing boxes on them. Now things seemed to be going well, and that’s how a few years went by.
Over the years, however, the group size has increased. So we got much more weight for transporting the plate boxes. One plate weighed about 0.6 kg, 40 plates with packages 25 kg. In Repovesi National Park we have to haul everything over water to near campfire place, so the weight is significant. We had to find a lighter solution for plates.
