During 2016, AccorHotels Australia rolled out the Healthy and Sustainable Food Charter to all hotels. The goal of the Charter is to offer guests a true culinary experience through high-quality, healthy and sustainable food, all the while contributing to the transformation of the agricultural model and fighting against food waste.

AccorHotels Australia has made the following commitments in line with the Charter:

  • Preference products and ingredients supplied from Australian producers to avoid transportation impacts
  • Ban the use of overfished species.
  • Offer one or more fish options from certified sustainable fisheries or aquaculture.

As part of AccorHotels commitment to serve consistently healthy and safe food for our guests, the business has adopted the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)  Food Safety Methodology. HACCP provide  a methodology to ensure that all raw materials, products and services that are purchased,handled and processed conform to specified requirements and provides traceability throughout the supply chain.With an initial focus on luxury and upscale brands, hotels across the Australian network are receiving certification, in addition to the suppliers engaged by National Procurement.

All other hotels are required to implement a comprehensive and compliant Food Safety Program that meets the needs of their operations.
