Seeking sustainable hotel suppliers
The Lovat hotel near Loch Ness has an eco-conscious ethos that has been developing since our inception. In our drive for improved sustainability, we regularly review our purchasing policy and hotel suppliers in order to improve our green practice.
At The Lovat, we don’t only think about the sustainability of our food. We’ve integrated sustainability into our business plan, so that it filters down into all elements of our hotel. Call us on 01456 490000 to find out more about our sustainability policy.
When working with a supplier and buying produce for the first time, we ask:
- Is it local?
- Is it Scottish?
- Can it be recycled?
- Is it made from recycled products?
These questions help us stay true to our business operation.
As our sustainable practices develop so do our own reasons for working with certain Scottish businesses. This is because, if they aren’t local, it is far better that they are at least Scottish to minimise transport. We are keen to get to know our suppliers from the outset by understanding their environmental and ethical policy. On occasion, we need to source produce from outside of Scotland. But where possible, we look to Loch Ness, the Highlands, Scotland and then further afield.
