The award recognises food producers, artisans, retail outlets, restaurants and cafes that demonstrate a philosophy of adopting earth friendly practices.
Tristan de la Porte du Theil, general manager, DUKES Dubai, commented, “We recognise that, as a large operation, we have an equally large responsibility for the protection of the environment and we are delighted to play our part. We take great pride in the fact that we only use the very best quality, seasonal ingredients, which are sustainable and sourced from local producers, for our menus across our restaurants. We recycle our waste and also employ a composting system at the hotel.”
The award is valid for 12 months and is not automatically renewed.
