From 9 August to 19 August, 2018, Shangri-La Hotel, Guangzhou presents three exclusive menus at its WOK TOO Café and MICHELIN Plate award-winning Summer Palace and WOK TOO Café, as an initiative for encouraging sustainable consumption on dining tables.

On the occasion of the World Oceans Day, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts announced it had received full Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Seafood Chain of Custody certification (CoC) for all its 53 properties across Mainland China and Hong Kong in July 2018. As the first hotel group in Asia the Shangri-La group initiated the certification programme as part of its sustainable sourcing strategy and commitment to protect future seafood supplies and make a positive impact on the environment. The initiative launched by Shangri-La Hotel, Guangzhou is a proactive support to this profound collaboration.

The MSC runs the only wild-capture fisheries certification and ecolabelling programme that meets best practice requirements set by both the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) and ISEAL, the global membership association for sustainability standards. The MSC is also the only global seafood certification programme to be recognised as credible by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI). Guests can identify these culinary offerings by the trusted MSC ecolabel printed alongside the dish description, which indicates the seafood is from MSC-certified fisheries and suppliers. MSC certification means the seafood was sustainably fished – it is fully traceable from a legal fishery, which has proven minimal impacts on the marine environment and other species, including threatened or endangered species and juvenile fish.

From the 'Sustainable Seafood Policy' launched in 2012 to cease shark’s fin supply from restaurants and banquet services in its affiliated hotels, to the “Rooted in Nature” culinary sustainability project introduced in 2014, Shangri-La group has been the forerunner in the field of ecology protection. The partnership with the MSC is the next milestone in Shangri-La group’s journey in sustainable development. China is the world’s largest seafood consumer, whose population accounts for one-third of all fish consumption and Guangdong contributes significantly to this amount. As Shangri-La’s flagship hotel in South China, Shangri-La Hotel, Guangzhou takes a leading role in advocating for sustainable consumption in Southern China and sourced refined Canadian snow crab, Atlantic cod, Boston lobster, Alaska pink salmon, and Atlantic scallop from MSC-certified fisheries and suppliers.

Guests who favour Cantonese and Chinese regional cuisines can relish in sustainable dishes presented by Chinese Executive Chef Mr. Chan Kwok Hung from Hong Kong. Highlights including Lobster and Bean Curd Soup, Steamed Scallop with Egg White and Caviar, Grilled Cod Fish with Black Vinegar, Slow Cooked Beef Short Ribs served with Crispy Rice and Halibut Cube, and Wok-fried Snow Crab Meat.
