Shangri-La Commits To Sustainable Seafood

Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts has unveiled its ‘Sustainable Seafood Policy’, continuing the hospitality heavyweight’s commitment towards environmental support. The Hong Kong-based group announced a decision to cease serving shark fin, bluefin tuna and Chilean sea bass at its 72 hotels and resorts worldwide.

 

All of its operated restaurants and banqueting will no longer offer shark fin products with immediate effect. Future banquet bookings made prior to the announcement will be honoured as per contractual agreements. Included as part of the policy are other endangered species such as bluefin tuna and Chilean sea bass, which will be phased out within the year.

 

Forming part of the group’s larger Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, the new policy is a continuation of its removal of the dishes, considered delicacies in Asia, from menus in December 2010. Shangri-La joins fellow hotel group Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels (operator of the Peninsula brand) in banning shark fin products from its properties.
