Crystalbrook Collection will begin labelling all menu items across their 14 restaurants and bars with Climate Calorie information to enable diners to enjoy their meal, comfortable that they are mitigating their environmental impact.
Through Climate Calories, diners will immediately be able to see whether the ingredients in their dish are locally sourced, sustainably grown or caught, have an indigenous connection, consciously reduce waste and were delivered to the restaurant in eco-friendly packaging.
Using icons alongside each dish, Climate Calories assures diners that the ingredients in their meal are:
- Locally sourced – within a three-hour radius of the restaurant
- Minimise waste – the chef has used all of the ingredient to reduce any waste
- Feature ethical meats – using the whole beast, line caught fish or sustainably farmed
- Supplied to the restaurant in eco-friendly packaging –100% recycled or bio-packaging
- Are culturally considered – using native ingredients and working with indigenous communities
Crystalbrook Collection CEO, Geoff York, said: “This is just the next step in our sustainability journey. This is a way our customers can feel empowered that they’re making a good environmental choice while connecting with the location and the community.
“We’re privileged in Australia to have access to such high-quality sustainable ingredients and our chefs take huge pride in their farmer and producer relationships, and sourcing local, ethical and culturally considered meat and produce.”
Climate Calories will be progressively introduced to Crystalbrook Collection’s 14 restaurants and bars from the first week of April.
