From 27 September to 16 October 2021, Grand Hyatt Bali will participate in the first–ever Sustainable Food Festival, initiated by Bali Hotel Association (BHA) to raise the awareness on sustainable living, especially in tourism. Joined by 30 leading hotels in Bali, the festival allows each participant to showcase the innovative programmes it has been creating to shift to a more sustainable way of operating. Participating hotels have prepared two– and three–course lunch menus that adhere to the sustainable and fair–trade principles.
The Sustainable Food Festival goes hand in hand with the Hyatt philosophy, “Food thoughtfully sourced, carefully served.” This value is evident from how Grand Hyatt Bali strives to offer healthy choices to the guests by working together with local suppliers, supporting options such as organic or antibiotic–free, and identifying options with a low–environmental impact. The festival’s requirements have been on the code of conduct at Grand Hyatt Bali for quite a while, including encouraging organically grown items, using locally sourced ingredients, respecting fair–trade principles, as well as ensuring that the seafood used is certified sustainable and the poultry is free range. Furthermore, Grand Hyatt Bali also uses vegetables and herbs from its own Chef’s Garden.
Priced at IDR 160,000++ for a two–course menu and IDR 285,000++ for a three–course menu, guests can choose from the eclectic selection, including salad, seafood, meat, cheese and more. At Grand Hyatt Bali, the Sustainable Food Festival will not only offer guests a delectable, responsibly sourced and prepared feast, but also fun activities that advertise the importance of sustainable lifestyle. Guests can partake in Sustainable Painting Workshop by Triple Eight Gallery on 26 September 2021, Eco Enzyme Workshop by Ketut Sudarwata from Eco Enzyme Nusantara and Soap for Hope Workshop by Yayasan Bali Life on 3 October 2021, and Sustainable Workshop for Kids at the Kids Club on 3 and 10 October 2021.
