Corporate Social Responsibility Framework

Food sourcing to reduce food miles and promote an ethical supply chain

Reducing Food Miles

Great dining defines the Hand Picked Hotels experience.

  • We are committed to supporting the communities where we operate through the provision of quality food and ingredients.
  • Information on locally-sourced food is highlighted on each hotel menu.
  • Our hotels grow herbs that are used in our restaurants and, in some of our properties, our chefs forage for wild produce or grow fruit and vegetables in the grounds.
  • Several hotels have hives in the grounds and work with a local beekeeper to produce organic honey that can be found on the breakfast buffet and on our menus.

Procuring Responsibly

We are developing procurement procedures that take into account social and ethical criteria whilst making no compromise on quality and overall value for our guests.

  • In 2013 we will rollout the following toiletry products

Bedroom toiletries without parabens and SLS components and soaps made from sustainable palm oil

Public washroom products whose proceeds of sales support honey bee and pollination research

 

  • Where possible we purchase Fairtrade or Rainforest
    Alliance beverage products for our bedrooms
  • We buy British where possible, taking into account food seasonality and quality of produce.
  • We check suppliers are acting ethically in sourcing and production.
  • There are no endangered fish species used on our menus.
