Seminaris saves vegetables from the “beauty police“
April 13, 2022
The Seminaris Hotels implement a comprehensive sustainability strategy. This includes saving organic vegetables, which EU standards declare not nice enough, but which are extra delicious according to chefs and guests.
Since March, the Seminaris Hotels have been serving special vegetables: the “Veggie Rebels”. These are crooked cucumbers, intertwined carrots or potatoes that are not quite round – and not only very adorable, but above all super tasty. But because the shape is harder to store and transport, EU standards declare such “improperly grown” vegetables to be rejects. This keeps them off the shelves of most supermarkets and organic stores.
Great love for food
Seminaris can now save such vegetables from organic farming in cooperation with the Berlin organic trader Querfeld. The hotels’ chefs are happy to have such special pieces under their knives. “Of course, it takes more effort to peel the vegetable rebels, but if you value food for what it is, being a resource for life, then the love for the product makes it a joy to handle,” explains Deborah Bertram, Head of Food & Beverage. “We are delighted to be able to offer them to our guests.”
Saving non-standard vegetables is sustainable, and thus the “Veggie Rebels” support Seminaris’ comprehensive strategy on this topic: the company, which is clearly committed to sustainable development and ecological responsibility, is continuously looking for new ways to complement its existing activities.
Seminaris Hotels are dedicated to the future of creative meetings: they offer everything you need for training, workshops and conferences based on the concept of New Work. Because if companies want to transform themselves, they need places where they can initiate creative development processes quickly, efficiently and with pleasure. Seminaris offers exactly these places. With hotel throughout Germany, individually designed and managed with character. With exciting event rooms and a network of trainers, coaches and speakers. With modern design in industrial style as well as an outstanding gastronomic offer. The vision and at the same time the claim “We make people grow” is alive on all levels: Guests are warmly welcomed and well cared for. In meetings based on the New Work concept, they can develop completely new ideas and business models. And the hotels’ own employees are also given intensive support in their individual development. All this is implemented with a strong focus on sustainability: In 2019, the company introduced a certified environmental management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001:2015 throughout the entire hotel group. www.seminaris.de
