A hotel in Mauritius with a Zero-food waste initiative

LUX* Resorts & Hotels is a brand that cares. In today’s world, one third of the food produced is not even eaten. It goes to waste.

Conscious of that waste, LUX* Le Morne decided to implement the Zero-Food Waste Project in collaboration with Mauritian NGOs and others of the hospitality and food distribution sectors.

In this way, the resort redistributes fresh surplus food to schools in the neighbourhood (up to 700 meals served per month!), shares best practices for sustainability, anticipates and manages the size of portions. We continuously aim to reduce our environmental impact and find a win-win situation for locals and conscious travelers.
