From 9 August to 19 August, you may enjoy our new dishes both in Shang Palace and Coffee Garden, in which the seafood used are certified by Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Join us to commit to protect future seafood supplies and make a positive impact on the environment.
MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) is a non-profit organization established to address the problem of unsustainable fishing and safeguard seafood supplies for the future. It is the only internationally accredited and recognized world leader in sustainable Fisheries Standard for wild- capture fisheries and Chain of Custody Standard for seafood traceability.
Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts today announced it has received full Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) seafood Chain of Custody certification (CoC) for all its 53 properties across Mainland China and Hong Kong. As the first hotel group in Asia, the Shangri-La group initiated the certification program me as part of its sustainable sourcing strategy and commitment to protect future seafood supplies and make a positive impact on the environment. With a total of 53 hotels participating, Shangri-La has the greatest number of properties in Asia certified by the MSC.
Critical to the collaboration is the highlighting of sustainably sourced seafood selections on the hotels’ restaurant menus. Guests can identify these culinary offerings by the trusted MSC ecolabel printed alongside the dish description, which indicates the seafood is from MSC-certified fisheries and suppliers. MSC certification means the seafood was sustainably fished – it is fully traceable from a legal fishery, which has proven minimal impacts on the marine environment and other species, including threatened or endangered species and juvenile fish.
The Shangri-La group recognizes that overfishing is a threat to the state of the oceans, which will struggle to meet the demands of Asia and China – the world’s largest seafood consumers, whose population accounts for one-third of all fish consumption. This new certification will allow guests of Shangri-La to make sustainable and healthy choices.
