In line with its efforts to serve guests with more “planet-friendly” food, luxury hotel Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, in cooperation with the Humane Society International (HSI), has pledged to switch 20% of its menu options in six dining venues to plant-based items.
The initiative is set to spare about 9,000 animals every year and around 150,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions, HSI said in a press release.
The move comes after a six-day training helmed by HSI for the hotel’s culinary team, equipping them with more knowledge on plant-based cooking and other culinary techniques. Some of the dishes featured in the workshop are Cinnamon French Toast, Banana Cream Pie with Gingerbread Crust, and a chicken dish made from lion’s mane mushroom.
The hotel is set to make the changes initially to their breakfast offerings.
“Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park is setting a meaningful example for the hospitality industry in Asia Pacific by working to reduce its use of animal proteins by 20% over the next two years. This transformative target and milestone will help to make the hospitality industry in [the] Asia Pacific more compassionate, sustainable, and nutritious,” Janjaree Chianwichai, HSI food policy manager for Southeast Asia, said in the press statement.
