26 Jul Fresh, Sustainable Gourmet Delights for Foodies: Part of Karisma’s Charm
The Karisma Hotels & Resorts family is already famed the world over for its breathtakingly beautiful properties set in some of the most desirable locations on the planet. Famed for its all-inclusive gourmet dining experiences in luxurious settings, the resort family’s properties are already a major draw for serious foodies. What many may not realize, however, is that Karisma is also dedicated to protecting and preserving the environment while ensuring its guests are treated to farm-to-table freshness that ensures only the highest-quality ingredients are used in meals served up daily at its resorts.
Gourmet delights for foodies
Karisma Hotels & Resorts proudly operates what it calls the “Passion for Sustainability Program” at each of its properties. This program is designed to promote eco-conscious tourism by ensuring that all properties in the family closely follow Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria. This commitment is found from the company’s corporate offices right down to the smallest onsite departments on its properties around the world.
Karisma’s Passion for Sustainability also extends into its gourmet kitchens where chef whip up meals that delight thousands of guests each and every year. Foodies with passions for freshness and sustainability both will likely find one aspect of this program quite intriguing. Since 2009, the hotel family’s properties along Mexico’s Riviera Maya, have been receiving their produce and fruits directly from Karisma’s own sustainable farming operation. The properties that reap the farm’s bounty are El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels, Azul Hotels and Generations Resorts.
Fresh and sustainable
Not surprising, considering the traffic these resorts enjoy, the farming operation is quite an extensive undertaking, Karisma estimates that more than 14 tons of fruits and vegetables have been harvested from the company’s private enclosed hydroponic greenhouse and surrounding orchard since they were established.
While making sure Karisma’s gourmet experience lives up to its reputation was a driving factor behind creating its own corporate farm to ensure freshness and quality, protecting the environment was also a primary consideration. Karisma’s farming operation was designed from day one to offer environmental sustainability while also ensuring worker safety. The program is so environmentally conscious, it has earned highly coveted Rainforest Alliance certification for its compliance with the principles that drive sustainable agriculture.
Dedicated to extraordinary
Karisma Hotels & Resorts are dedicated to delighting guests with extraordinary experiences. For foodies, part of that experience comes from knowing the gourmet sensations served daily contain locally grown fruits and vegetables that were produced with dedication to sustainability.
