Local lunch at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Lucerne in Switzerland

Every Tuesday, the kitchen team of the LUCE Restaurant in the Green Key awarded Radisson Blu Hotel Lucerne indulges their guests with delicacies from the local market – and helps to protect the environment at the same time.

The concept of the project is fairly simple: Every Tuesday, the business lunch offered in the hotel’s restaurant only consists of products that were found on the local market. The head chef and his team themselves visit the market and choose the ingredients for the lunch.

This does not only challenge the creativity of the kitchen team, but is also a great initiative to protect the environment and support local businesses. By buying only local products instead of products that travelled a long way, carbon emissions that are usually generated during the transportation are reduced and the benefits for local farmers and producers increased.
