Two COMO Hotels and Resorts properties in Bali; COMO Uma Canggu and COMO Uma Ubud are joining the first Bali Hotel Association Sustainable Food Festival that will be held from 27 September 27 until 16 October 2021. This festival allows COMO Beach Club at COMO Uma Canggu and Uma Cucina at COMO Uma Ubud to showcase the innovative work they have been putting in during these times to shift to a more sustainable way of operating. While programs such as single use plastic reduction are already well established, both food and beverage outlets are preparing a special two-course set menu featuring Indonesian food at COMO Beach Club and Italian-twist treats at Uma Cucina to be devoured during this period. The menus adhere to the following key sustainability criteria:
  • Ingredients used must be 100% sourced from Indonesia
  • Encourage a minimum of 75% organically grown items
  • Respect fair trade principles, i.e. fully female run enterprises
  • All seafood produces to be certified sustainable and poultry to be free range
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. These initiatives are intended to set a benchmark for the future, by being implemented across all operational areas beyond the festival period.
