A free event is being held this week to provide practical advice on reducing food waste, cutting energy bills and sourcing local food.
Organised by the Considerate Hoteliers and the Sustainable Restaurant Association (SRA), Five Star Values: Sustainability in Hotel Dining will take place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London on 17 July.
Speakers will include Erick Kervaon, general manager of the Bingham in Richmond, and Stephen Rey, executive chef of Lancaster London, who have both received a three-star rating from the SRA.
SRA managing director Mark Linehan said: "We are working with an increasing number of hotel restaurants who are responding to consumer demand and putting sustainability at the very heart of their business. This seminar will demonstrate the recipe for success."
Xenia zu Hohenlohe, marketing director of Considerate Hoteliers, added: "Hotel restaurants are generally faced with different challenges than standalone gastronomic operations, given that they often need to provide 24-hour room service as well as cater three meals a day. This increases the potential for food waste and adds a different dimension to their purchasing policies. With this in mind, our work with these teams is focused on a hands-on approach in order to engage all the staff through practical workshops to help them address these issues."
