Sun Keeper

Our menu that gives light to people in third world countries

Sustainable solar technologies may be a real alternative, as they can meet the particularly urgent need for a reliable energy supply in poor but sun-rich countries. To bring light to Africa's dark spots, Scandinavian artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen developed the solar lamp Little Sun five years ago. Terra Canis supports this project by donating 10 cents for each tin sold to the Little Sun Foundation. The Terra Canis Sun Keeper menu is edible sunlight in the bowl. Juicy beef is accompanied by energy-rich sweet potato and sun-ripened fruit, namely mango, melon, kiwi and peach, as well as lots of other sunny ingredients. 100% human-grade quality of all ingredients.

The project: LITTLE SUN

Alongside food, water and a secure roof over people’s heads, a reliable source of light and energy is one of life’s essentials. Solar lamps provide safe lighting in refugee camps, schools and family homes – and are also a healthy alternative to paraffin lamps. To bring light to Africa's dark spots, Scandinavian artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen started to develop the solar lamp Little Sun five years ago: a small sun made from plastic that contains a solar element on the back. In order to charge the lamps with energy, they are hung around the neck on a strap and then give off 4-10 hours of light in the evening (depending on brightness). Little Sun is therefore bringing solar light to the people who need it most. The project develops local distribution networks in sub-Saharan Africa and trains small-scale entrepreneurs to earn a living by selling the small lamps. Little Sun also supplies solar lamps and charging equipment to crisis regions, refugee camps and schools in regions that do not have electricity. Here, the small lamps not only enhance the educational opportunities of children by enabling them to read for longer, but also lay the foundation for a sustainable future.

Sun Keeper:

Beef with coconut, sun-ripened fruit and turmeric
Sun Keeper provides dogs with all their daily needs thanks to its highly healthy recipe, and at the same time brings light into the darkness wherever required. The Terra Canis Sun Keeper menu is edible sunlight in the bowl for our four-legged friends. Juicy beef is accompanied by energy-rich sweet potato and sun-ripened fruit, namely mango, melon, kiwi and peach. Coconut flour not only ensures balanced gastrointestinal flora but is also a great source of valuable fibre. The sun-loving herbs lavender, thyme and marjoram provide lots of natural micro nutrients. An extra power boost is provided by ground sunflower seeds and linseed oil, which provides the healthy essential fatty acids in Sun Keeper. The superfood spirulina with its high content of chlorophyll, i.e. ‘green sunlight’, adds further numerous highly healthy micro nutrients and antioxidants to the bowl.
