Nature in Balance
At Metaxa Hospitality Group, we document the creation of a sustainable ecosystem within our hotels by:
Food Production System
We follow the principles of the European Green Agreement, and we aim, through the EU “From farm to fork” strategy, to contribute in a positive way to the actions for the climate change and environmental degradation, as well as to a sustainable, healthy and environmentally friendly food system.
Our sustainable choices include the optimal management of natural resources — water, energy, food raw materials —, the promotion of soil health as well as the management of organic waste through four different application fields: vegetable gardens, herbs, edible nuts and grasses.
We seek to connect sustainable food production with gastronomy, offering healthy food options (slow food) to our guests.
Sustainable Hotel Farming
At Metaxa Hospitality Group, we have implemented a 360º approach incorporating 4 pillars:
1. Issues Related to Energy
We reduce our energy footprint by implementing a coherent policy of sustainable practices for horticulture, cultivation, and food supply chain in our hotels.
2. Our Own Food Production
In the gardens of our hotels, we cultivate using certified sustainable practices:
Self-production of fresh vegetables
Metaxa Hospitality Group's policy is to apply certified, innovative and sustainable methods of food production and cultivation, utilizing local practices and knowledge that have their roots thousands of years ago.
We offer what we produce to our guests
Metaxa Hospitality Group hotels have their own organic gardens. We directly connect the cultivation of our gardens to our hotels' restaurants and bars. In combination with the "Sustainable Supplies" initiative, we associate the production of raw materials with quality and responsible consumption and gastronomy.
Each year, the teams of chefs and gardeners decide on the crops. The restaurants’ menu is based on production capacity; on the other hand, the gardens adapt to what the kitchen team wants to offer.
3. Sustainable Landscape Management
Sustainable management of man-made landscape, a term used to denote the intervention of man to plant something where it did not exist, is based on our following actions:
4. Training & Communication
Mindset transformation comes through small actions. At Metaxa Hospitality Group, we contribute to developing a new concept of hotel agriculture and its connection to the production and supply of food. It is our moral duty to inform and educate the stakeholders with whom we interact, namely:
