Best of ViaVia

The start

Back in December 1995, we kicked off ViaVia Jogjakarta on the island of Java, marking it as the very first international ViaVia. It’s been a wild ride, battling through all sorts of hurdles – political dramas, social unrest, economic rollercoasters, earthquakes, volcanic ash showers, and lately, let’s not forget that virus-that-shall-not-be-named that wreaked havoc. 

Fast Forward

Fast forward to 2024, and we were itching to spread our wings to Bali. Sustainability is our jam, but bringing that ethos to Bali is no walk in the park. The island’s booming in a way that it’s concerning, to say the least. Is there even room for a ViaVia amidst all this expansion madness? But we reckon we can still make a difference here. We’re all about promoting sustainable vibes, empowering local communities, and teaming up with people and projects who share our vision.

A Fair Shop

Many people in Bali still have few opportunities to provide for themselves. Our conscious store gives marginalized groups, such as the physically challenged or female breadwinners, market access through which they can earn a living.

Our conscious store offers a platform to showcase and promote a wide array of ecological, creative and healthy products, providing opportunities for mindful consumers to make a positive impact with their purchases.


Tablewares: LoveLifeStudio

Their journey began with noticing lots of discarded bottles in the tourist areas and their passion for the environment. They repurpose them into a variety of products, from drinking glasses to lamps, using hand-cutting and sandblasting techniques, offering custom designs for homes, restaurants, hotels, and companies.

about MSG, Palm Oil and Eggs

We refuse to use Mono Sodium Glutamate in ViaVia. Instead of using chemical taste enhancers to our food, we use additional local spices and seasonings to make the flavours stronger.

Palm oil is the world’s cheapest and most popular vegetable oil. But it comes at a huge environmental cost. Palm oil heavily contributes to deforestation and replaces rainforest with a palm tree monoculture which is then again causing erosion and depletes the land.  It also endangers habitats of already endangered animal species like the orang-utan. We try to say no to palm oil and we can ensure you that it is not an easy task!

We are concerned about animal welfare, and therefor we commit to transitioning to a 100% cage-free egg supply chain for all our products and menus. The transition will be completed by 2024.
