Ecological Breakfast a Great Success

Since february, all 160 Choice Hotels Scandinavia have served an ecological breakfast. The hotel chain can now offer an ecological alternative in eleven product categories.

In six months the hotels have served three million cups of ecological coffee, close on a half million ecological eggs and around 90,000 litres of ecological milk. The only thing standing in the way of progress is the lack of produce.

“Within three years, 50 per cent of all the food we serve will be ecological, guests we always have an ecological alternative,” says Riita Östberg, Marketing Manager at Choice. “We strive to be the hotel chain with the greatest social responsibility.”

Choice has purchased ecological products to the tune of more than SEK 10 million. On average, ecological produce is 25 percent more expensive than conventional. For example, ecological juice is around 58 percent more expensive than regular juice and ecological eggs around 73 percent. In addition, ecological produce is seldom suitable for catering as it normally comes in smaller consumer packaging.
