FOOD DISPOSAL POLICY
Food management at the Creta Maris Beach Resort minimises surpluses and prevents raw ingredients from being discarded. At the end of the tourist season, all sealed packages that might be left over are donated to food collection organisations for those in need, such as through the ‘Help at home’ programme of the Municipality of Hersonissos.
Buffet food that has been cooked and not consumed is offered to restaurant employees, following strict preservation procedures.
Creta Maris Beach Resort participated in a European pilot project called F4F (Food for Feed), which converts all leftover food into animal feed/pet food. Every day, the food left over from the main restaurant was stored in a designated hotel warehouse and transported by an external partner to the F4F programme facilities in Heraklion.
