Newport, RI (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel & Spa today announced the launch of Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served., Hyatt’s global philosophy focused on sourcing and providing healthy food and beverage options for Hyatt guests and associates and that are good for the local communities in which they reside and good for the planet. Embarking on the journey to become the first global hospitality brand to make an effort of this magnitude, this philosophy will guide Hyatt Regency Newport’s food and beverage planning from the operational level to the guest experience. With this long term strategy, Hyatt Regency Newport will work to anticipate and satisfy the evolving preferences of its guests, ensuring that travelers have more options to fit their needs and lifestyles while staying in Newport.
Driven by insights and in-depth research, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. is grounded in three pillars.
Implementation of the philosophy, which began in the U.S. in mid-2011, includes sourcing and serving meat without supplemental growth hormones or antibiotics, cage-free eggs, sustainable seafood, and fresh local ingredients that reflect the season and local flavors. Hyatt Regency Newport is also reducing the use of ingredients with high amounts of sodium and additives and serving beverages with natural sweeteners such as agave nectar.
Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. is a key component of the health and wellness pillar of Hyatt Thrive, Hyatt’s global corporate responsibility platform designed to enable thriving communities.
As an outgrowth of the company’s core values, Hyatt properties will continue to partner with local community groups and organize volunteer efforts and fund raising support in an effort to improve the economic future of the people and businesses in the communities where Hyatt hotels are located. From providing cooking skills courses in local schools to supporting and hosting farmers markets, Hyatt will also continue to make an effort to support the health of guests, associates and people in the local community.
To further demonstrate its dedication to Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. Hyatt has joined forces with Partnership for Healthier America (PHA), which will hold Hyatt accountable for continuously improving the nutritional profile of children’s food menus at full-service managed Hyatt properties across the U.S. over the next 10 years. This pledge marks the first of its kind by a hospitality company to PHA.
