Farm To Table Consulting For Hotels, Resorts, and Restaurants.
More and more consumers are insisting upon eating organic and local foods. In turn, businesses are now marketing these items on their menus and in their activities. In the developing world, there are major challenges to this new model--primarily cost and efficiency--since imports tend to be cheaper, and local agriculture tends to be disorganized.
If you are a boutique hotel who wants to source local foods, and ensure the kitchen prepares them well, Banana Tree can make this happen. We also are pleased to have developed the first monthly farm-to-table dinner series in the Caribbean. Our expertise is in establishing all elements of a sound Farm-to-Table relationship between local producers and your establishment. This includes: streamlining production, distribution, and preparation of the product all the way from the farm to the customer's plate.
Organic Agriculture in the tropics is tricky. And so is sourcing the kinds of gourmet herbs and greens you may want available on your property, whether a private residence or a fully functioning hotel.
A kitchen garden designed by Banana Tree can provide many of the fresh, unique herbs and vegetables you require. Banana Tree will work with on-site staff to establish the garden, provide comprehensive training in organic agriculture, and tailor the garden’s yield to the kitchen’s menu.
