Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek collaborates with GreeenTech to launch a vertical farm inside the hotel's seafood restaurant Fish Market, Dubai.
The new farm will be set up at the hotel's much-loved seafood restaurant Fish Market. The team at the outlet already prides itself on ensuring all products are fresh and ethically sourced, and now they will be able to add their own homegrown vegetables to the menu. The farm will officially open at the end of May, where lettuce and radish will be cultivated in the restaurant.
GreeenTech displayed their innovation at the Czech Republic pavilion this year during Dubai's Expo 2020. It was there that the Hydroponic farm caught the eye of Jan Hanak, a Czech national and General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek. With Radisson Hotel group's commitment to net zero in mind, Jan was keen to implement the technology at the landmark property. Despite being the first five-star hotel to open in Dubai in 1975, Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek is already leading the way in its commitment to sustainability with modern technology and solutions. The hotel won the MENA Green Building Award last year after implementing solar panel boilers.
Jan Hanak, General Manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Deira Creek, said: "Our hotel was fortunate to be one of the few official catering partners at Expo 2020, and this is something that we are very proud of. We were exposed almost daily to the innovative and technological solutions of the future on display at the pavilions, and we knew we wanted to be a part of continuing the legacy of Expo as soon as we met the team at GreeenTech. Our hotel has a history full of firsts, from being the first five-star hotel in the city to launching Dubai's first brunch. We are glad that we can now continue that by launching Dubai's first Hydroponic farm, and I know the team at GreeenTech are very excited as well."
