Centara completely eliminates trans fat across the group

Published on : Thursday, January 31, 2019

Centara Hotels & Resorts announced the discontinuance of all use of trans fat in its food and beverage operations, in accordance with the new Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) guidelines.

 

 

 

Centara supported the new MOPH policy announced last year. It recently completed an audit of its bakery, restaurant and catering operations to assure the elimination of the potentially harmful type of oils to benefit the health of its guests.

 

 

 

Since the implementation of the trans-fat-free initiative three months ago, Centara has served about 3-4 million meals of trans-fat-free food to over 1.5 million guests. They prioritise the health and wellness of their guests.

 

 

 

 

Winfried Hancke, Corporate Director of Operations Food & Beverage, Centara Hotels & Resorts said: “We are happy to reassure our guests that pastries at our Zing bakeries, pizza and fries at our COAST beach bistros, and all the other food they enjoy at Centara, are free of trans-fat.”

 

 

 

He appreciated the chefs and F&B managers who have been diligently and resourcefully achieved this goal for the health and wellness of their guests and staff.

 

 

 

 

Trans-fat, from partially-hydrogenated vegetable oils, was introduced by the food industry in the mid-20th century. It helped prolong the shelf life and reduce costs of processed foods. Trans fat was typically used in fried foods, margarine and vegetable shortening, salad dressings, processed snacks and non-dairy creamer. However, trans fat is highly inimical to human health.
