Positive Hospitality In Action At Accorhotels

April 29, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

AccorHotels, which is present in 1,700 cities worldwide, has committed to developing urban farming and to planting 1,000 vegetable gardens by 2020. Though just a few months have passed since this commitment was announced, over 500 vegetable gardens have already been planted worldwide, from Bangkok to Rome and Sao Paulo to Kinshasa.

Hotels like The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley is setting new standards for local production and sourcing. The hotel now sources up to 30% of its menu from the hotel’s 70 acre grounds and vegetable garden, with a further 50% from local partners. The Sebel has an agreement with a local farmer who manages cattle and pigs on the hotel’s grounds. The livestock is processed at a local abattoir ensuring that the full process remains local.

At The Sebel Kirkton Park, the emphasis is placed on creating menus that are ever changing to reflect the season produce. The hotel’s Executive Chef regularly runs education tours of the vegetable garden for guests, providing an opportunity for guests to engage in a full sensory experience, picking their own dinner ingredients and building their understanding of nose to tail cooking and the steps from paddock to plate.
