Sustainable Food Festival 2022
Through the efforts of each hotel this festival is about reaching out to the entire community here in Bali which has been so badly affected by this pandemic. We are thrilled to share that Bali Hotels Association has invited Bali Restaurant and Café Association members to participate this year, with the aim of growing the movement across the island in a meaningful and impactful manner to showcase to the island, to Indonesia, to South East Asia and beyond just what can be done when we work together.
The festival allows participating members to showcase the innovative work they have been putting in during these times to shift to a more sustainable way of operating, from improving skill levels of team members, to building new or improving existing relations with local suppliers, plus working on waste reduction actions.
To be featured, menus must adhere to the following key sustainability criteria:
Minimum two items featured for lunch and three items featured for dinner
Ingredients used must be 100% sourced from Indonesia
Menus are encouraged to showcase Indonesian flavours such as rendang, balado, as well as organically grown produce
The festival also aims at reducing waste output to as close to zero as possible, by encouraging waste reduction activities such as composting and waste separation to facilitate recycling. The festival’s key partner in waste diversion this year is Scholars of Sustenance (SOS) who have operated in Bali for years making positive impact in the community by providing meals to the needy as well as reducing food waste to landfill. These initiatives are intended to set a benchmark for the future, by being implemented across all operational areas beyond the festival period.
Lunch & Dinner Dining Options
Lunch – minimum two options
Dinner – minimum three options
At least 3 dishes/items for sale, one vegetarian.
• All ingredients must be sourced on Bali, or at least within Indonesia
