Hastings Hotels launched its Who Made My Breakfast? booklet at an event in the Stormont Hotel which was attended by a host of local politicians including Ian Paisley Jr and Alastair Ross, industry experts and local suppliers.
Howard Hastings, Managing Director of Hastings Hotels said: “We are Northern Ireland’s only hotel group to use only 100% local produce for our breakfast. Food Provenance is of major importance to us as a group and the aim of the Who Made My Breakfast? booklet is to showcase the true Northern Ireland breakfast experience we offer at Hastings Hotels which would not be possible without our wonderful local suppliers.
“We use only the finest local produce and provide a breakfast which is consistent across the six Hastings Hotels and this booklet is about the people behind the magnificent produce which offers guests a true Northern Ireland experience,” Howard said.
“Who Made My Breakfast? allows us to tell the story behind the breakfast giving guests the opportunity to find out more about what they are eating. They can even see the pictures of the people responsible for what they are eating including the suppliers from Armagh Apple Juice, Clandeboye Estate Yoghurt, bacon from Hannan Meats, Clements Eggs in County Down, McKenna Mushrooms from Mid-Ulster and Bob Colhoun’s Tomatoes from Drumbeg.
“Food is a hugely important part of the visitor experience, so the more we can do to promote the quality of our local produce and our local suppliers, the better. At Hastings Hotels, we are proud of what our local soils, our local climate and our local people can produce and we hope that this booklet will help our local suppliers, which I think are amongst the best in the world, increase their business,” Howard concluded.
