Grand Hyatt Singapore attains MSC & ASC Chain of Custody Certification
MSC & ASC Chain of Custody Certification for Seafood
Our hotel in Singapore is proud to announce that the majority of the seafood served at its restaurants and event venues is independently certified sustainable. In recognition of the hotel’s achievements, Grand Hyatt Singapore was awarded Chain of Custody (CoC) certifications by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) – making it one of the first hotels in Asia to achieve this standard.
Consuming over 140,000 tonnes of seafood a year, Singaporeans are one of the largest seafood consumers in Asia. With nearly 90 percent of our oceans being overfished, the MSC and ASC certifications are recognised as the highest standards available for sourcing sustainably caught and responsibly farmed seafood, which is also heavily backed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), a leading global conservation organisation.
Menus at all of the outlets were rewritten to feature sustainable seafood sourced from accredited fisheries and distributors, including those that are under the MSC and ASC. These seafood dishes will be accompanied by the MSC and ASC logos on the menu, to place power into the hands of diners to make informed choices about the food they consume.
As an MSC and ASC CoC certified hotel, diners at the hotel’s restaurants in Singapore and event venues Singapore can be assured that non-exploitative fishing and farming methods have been used to procure the seafood products used at the hotel. This achievement reaffirms Grand Hyatt Singapore’s commitment to sustainable seafood practices through the food supply chain and, ultimately, providing environmentally conscious food options for the hotel’s diners.
“This certification has been a collaborative effort across all of our hotel’s departments, which reflect our values of Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. Our global initiative focuses on creating a positive impact on the local community and, ultimately, our planet in everything we do in food and beverage”, said Executive Chef Lucas Glanville.
“We are delighted to extend our heartiest congratulations to the Grand Hyatt Singapore for receiving MSC and ASC’s Chain of Custody certification. Renowned for its local delicacies, the Grand Hyatt’s initiative in serving sustainably sourced MSC and ASC certified seafood goes beyond transforming the hospitality industry to also inspire local chefs and hawkers to take ownership in safeguarding the health of our oceans”, said Kelvin Ng, Commercial Director (South East Asia & Hong Kong), Marine Stewardship Council Asia.
In celebration of the hotel’s achievement, mezza9 has launched a “Thank Goodness It’s Fish Day (TGIF)” offer with 50% off wines for every sustainable seafood dish ordered each Friday during lunch.
