Training-Sustainable-Kitchen-Red Sea

The Egyptian Chefs Association has just concluded another in-depth training session on sustainable food practices as part of the phase 2 of “The Sustainable Kitchen” training program in Red Sea Hotels Port Ghalib.

The Sustainable Kitchen training program is a part of the “Sustainable Food on Holiday” concept – an industry project initiated by Futouris. This member-based organization is the sustainability initiative of the German-speaking tourism industry. Their members are committed to the improvement of living conditions, the conservation of biological diversity plus environment and climate protection.

Egypt is a popular tourist destination for the German-speaking tourism industry. Research indicated that more than 55% of German package holiday travellers strongly agreed that travel companies should not only meet but exceed ecological and social standards even if this meant an increase in prices. For this reason, Futouris approached the Egyptian Chefs Association to develop the Sustainable Kitchen training package for the Egyptian tourism market. This package will be used to qualify all important hotel employees in sustainable food practices and in the science of sustainable nutrition. The project is supported by the following organizations: QTA – Quality Travel Alliance; GIZ Responsible; Inclusive Business Hub MENA on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ); Orascom Hotel Management.

The on-premises training program consisted of an in depth training session on food sustainable practices in general with a special focus on food waste reduction. Internal communication (among staff members) and external communication (with guests) of sustainable food practices were also covered. The training was concluded with a session on how to implement, through teamwork, sustainable food strategies across the board in any hotel operation. Custom tailored recommendations suitable for direct implementation at the hotel were given.

The Egyptian Chefs Association wishes to thank the Red Sea Hotels Port Ghalib for their kind hospitality and looks forward to continue its good cooperation with the hotel management team.
