Sustainable Seafood Week at Marriott Hotel Manila

A few weeks ago Marriott Hotel Manila launched the 2nd Sustainable Seafood Week at The Marriott Grand Ballroom.  It is a nationwide environmental awareness campaign which is lead by Marriott Hotel Manila and joined by other hotels and restaurants. 

It is no secret that seafood is diminishing the world over and it is such a welcome relief that Marriott Hotel Manila and other hotels and restaurants vow never to be part of its further decline by sourcing seafood products only from sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.  It clearly shows their commitment to help improve the health of the bodies of water by making responsible business practices and supporting the cause.

Come take a peek at the media launch and see how you can also embark on the movement to save the seas.

Isn't that worth a toast?


A toast to supporting only responsibly-sourced seafood from fisheries and aquaculture!

Marriott Hotel Manila's Executive Chef, Meik Brammer, shares: “I am proud to have Marriott at the forefront of a global effort. As a chef, I do feel responsible of ensuring what we offer our guests are both high-quality and from sustainable sources so we have more years of great food and satisfied guests”

But the fun doesn't stop here.  For the whole month of February, Marriott Manila takes the lead on the nationwide Sustainable Seafood advocacy to raise awareness on this environmental campaign by serving sustainably caught marine products from local sources.

Ocean’s Harvest buffet at Marriott Café goes bigger this February.  Seafood on ice selections are twice as delicious with choices of Whole Tiger Prawns, New Zealand Mussels, White Shell Clams, Curacha and Slipper Lobsters.
