In partnership with Bali Restaurant and Café Association (BRCA), the second Bali Hotels Association (BHA) Sustainable Food Festival has been officially launched. The Press Conference which was held last week on Thursday, July 7th, 2022 at Conrad Bali Nusa Dua was attended by the BHA Officials, including Fransiska Handoko, the Chairwoman of BHA, Kevin Girard, the Vice-Chair and Director of Sustainability of BHA and Dean Keddell, the Co-founder of the BRCA.

Celebrating the reopening of Bali to international traveler, this festival allows participating members to showcase the innovative work they have been putting in, leading towards a more sustainable way of operating. Find out the list of participating members here.

The culinary creations from participating members of hotels and restaurants can be enjoyed in each participating venue, available for lunch and dinner throughout the festival period.

There are also key sustainable criteria required to participate in this festival. The requirements are based on these highlights; minimum two items featured for lunch and three items featured for dinner, ingredients used must be 100% sourced from Indonesia, menus are encouraged to showcase Indonesian delicacies, as well as organically grown produce.

As explained by Kevin Girard, the festival is an echo of the reduce, reuse, and recycle practice that has been on the forefront of businesses in the past years, and it is aimed to bring more to the table. 

“The festival also aims at reducing waste output to as close to zero as possible by encouraging waste reduction activities such as composting and waste separation to facilitate recycling,” says Girard.

These initiatives are intended to set a benchmark for the future by being implemented across all operational areas beyond the festival period. Scholars of Sustenance (SOS), a global food rescue foundation, through SOS Indonesia, has been invited to support the festival, providing options for participating hotels and restaurants to donate prepared, unserved food for better use.

With this year’s theme, “Bringing Sustainability to the Table”, the festival invites anyone from anywhere – you do not need to be a hotel guest from the participating hotels to enjoy this one-of-a-kind food festival. 

Reserve your special sustainable dinner as soon as possible before the festival ends next week! 

Advance reservations are highly recommended to confirm space availability in both hotels and restaurants, while also ensuring correct production amounts of food to avoid wastage.
