Park Hyatt Melbourne Presents A Story So Sweet
In 2015, alongside bee keeper Chris Kowalski, Park Hyatt Melbourne installed 4 beehives on the hotel's rooftop and are now proudly producing 100% raw honey to the delight of their guests!
Today the hotel's 120,000 bees produce more than 50 kilograms of honey which is harvested annually. The honey, rich in colour and delicious in taste not only finds it way into the hotel's menus but is also served daily at Park Hyatt Melbourne's buffet breakfast.
A wonderful statement about Park Hyatt Melbourne's concern for the environment the honey is also educational for the hotel's culinary team and a way for Park Hyatt Melbourne to give back to nature.
Park Hyatt Melbourne pride themselves on upholding Hyatt’s global food philosophy; ‘Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served.' Working closely with local producers and suppliers, the hotel's culinary team is passionate about providing sustainable dining for guests.
He Is The Bee's Knees
A bee keeper from Victoria, Chris Kowalski rescues hives from residential areas of Melbourne, and relocates them, often handling them without a beekeeping suit!
“Bees play a vital role in our food systems, pollinating one-third of everything we eat. I have so much passion for what I do with bee keeping!”
