Our Commitment to Sustainability.
Good food relies on good, fresh ingredients. Without them we would not be able to conjure up our magic in the kitchen. Ensuring we will continue to have access to good products in the future requires a commitment to sustainable practices and is something we take very seriously.
Responsible Sourcing at QEII Taste
We incorporate local seasonal produce into our menus, which minimises the overall food miles and ensures that we know the origin and route to market of all the products we use.
We are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), which means our seafood comes from fisheries that are committed to sustainable fishing practices. Our coffee and tea are Fairtrade and we will provide you with One Water mineral water, all the profits of which go to funding better access to clean water in Africa.
