Belmond Le Manoir aims to compost 94% of its annual food waste


Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons is aiming to reduce its food and other biodegradable waste by 94% and use it as a source of compost for its grounds.

The 15th-Century Manor  house hotel famous for its two Michelin stars, its two-acre Kitchen Garden, Raymond Blanc's Private Dining and Cookery School as well as its Gardening School. 

The hotel’s vegetable and herb gardens and orchards will benefit from the compost to grow organic produce for use in the restaurant, as well as the Cookery and Gardening Schools.

Another way of reducing food waste at source is to sell it at the end of the day to those willing to take a punt on what they might get. Apps like Too Good To Go reduce food waste, bring an additional revenue stream and introduce new customers to the F&B offering.

The two Michelin-starred luxury hotel and Raymond Blanc restaurant is to introduce a A1200 Rocket Composter and a Gobi 400 Food Waste Dryer from Macclesfield-headquartered Tidy Planet, which will aim to help the site to compost 94% of its annual food waste.
