Hilton Hotels in Malaysia proudly present an array of plant-based culinary creations using local produce, available only during the month of October.
In conjunction with World Food Day on 16th October and as part of the Hilton
Worldwide Travel with Purpose sustainability programme, Hilton has launched a nationwide “Mindful Meals” campaign to raise awareness on healthy eating and responsible sourcing.
Incorporating fresh proteins and produce as well as homegrown ingredients, dishes are given a healthier twist at the following properties: DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Bahru, Hilton Kuching,DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka, and Hilton Garden Inn KL -South Tower.
The collaboration with local farmers is a timely and much-needed initiative to
highlight the best of local food as well as the importance of sustainable and nutritious diets, especially during an age where environmental and health risks are at an all-time high.
Hence, working with suppliers with MSC certification is priority.
With issues from climate change to the rise in fast food production to declining immunity systems and health, Hilton Hotels in Malaysia are encouraging consumers to choose local produce, opt for healthy and nutrient-rich ingredients, find sustainable ways to eat, and go for environmentally-friendly alternatives when it comes to food choices and buying behaviours.
“Mindful Meals is all about promoting mindful eating and mindful consumption in an effort to reduce food waste, address food security, and improve health. We wanted to curate a dining experience that is as palate-pleasing as it is purposeful, and we also wanted to give a platform for local farmers to showcase what they have to offer and unite for a common cause.” said National Marketing Communications Director Eugene Oelofse.
The World Food Day specials have been crafted by in-house chefs of the participating outlets at Hilton Hotels across Malaysia, making use of local ingredients, vegetables, and proteins that are good for the people, planet, and community. Featured dishes include Rambungan Soft Shell Crab at Toh Yuen in Hilton Kuching, Vegetarian Pizza with locally-sourced vegetables at Tosca
in DoubleTree by Hilton Melaka, and Seafood Jumbo Platter at Rooftop 25 Restaurant in Hilton Garden Inn – South Tower. All of the dishes will be available in October.
