  • Social Impact

    We believe work experience is formative in developing communication skills, professional skills, procrastination skills and erm, work avoidance techniques. So we've teamed up with The Hackney 100 project which seeks to provide paid work experience opportunities for school kids aged between 16-19. Placements are designed to run alongside school work.

    The Hackney 100 project began with our first intern/assistant Joris – who due to the Living Wage and our humble origins was, for a while, simultaneously both an intern and the best paid team member of Dalston’s. Joris has now flown the nest and gone on to study at university.

  • Environmental Impact

    We live in a world with a fundamentally unsustainable food system. While Dalston’s is small, we want to make sure we’re doing all we can to avoid further damaging the planet with our activities while we navigate the soft drinks world.

    We're in the process of becoming carbon neutral. Why? A major problem in the world of food and drink is the amount of energy and water taken up in the growing, processing, and transporting of things. If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Good thing is, we can measure our carbon footprint - so that’s what we’re doing. Once we’ve finished this quite complex process of calculation, we’ll fund a carbon saving initiative so you can rest easy that what you’re consuming isn’t contributing to general badness.
