Living well begins with eating well. That's why we are committed to providing the highest dining standards at all of our hotels and resorts. Our focus on ethically sourced, local and organic ingredients ensures we have a positive environmental and social impact along our value chain.
To sustainably support Thai farmers, organic agriculture, and improve food security in Thailand, we aim to address the social, environmental, and economic challenges that have become endemic to Thailand’s agriculture system.
Through our partnership with Sampran Model, an inclusive business model based on organic social movement and fair trade, we purchase organically grown rice directly from local farmers. Our plan is to use only organic rice in all our Thailand-based hotels, and we are now conducting a pilot programme at Dusit Thani Pattaya and Dusit Thani Huahin with a view to fully transition to this model soon.
Organic gardens have been established at Dusit Thani LakeView Cairo, Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu, Dusit Thani Hua Hin and Dusit Princess Srinakarin Bangkok. Here, our chefs have easy access to an array of fresh, chemical-free herbs and other ingredients. The fuel we save on deliveries helps to lower carbon emissions too.
From Dusit Princess Moonrise Beach Resort Phu Quoc in Vietnam, which sources 100% locally grown coffee, to Dusit Thani Maldives, whose daily Happy Hour features innovative cocktails and snacks made using native ingredients, when you dine or drink with Dusit, you are socially and economically empowering local farmers and their communities while supporting a healthier planet for all.
Global trade in illegal wildlife is estimated to be worth billions of dollars each year. This urgent global issue not only threatens some of the world’s most vulnerable species with extinction, but also damages the livelihoods of people in rural communities and sustainable economic growth. As a responsible business and global member of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), we ensure our operations are not directly involved in the promotion of illegal wildlife products.
