A hotel group from Norway has banned sausages and bacon from its breakfast menu to encourage healthier and more sustainable eating practices.
Nordic Choice hotel group– which operates over 170 properties including Comfort hotels, Quality hotels, Clarion hotels, and others throughout Scandinavia and the Baltics— will replace the meaty breakfast items with plant-based options at locations of its Comfort Hotel chain.
Petter Stordalen, Nordic Choice’s owner, cited sustainability—rather than the WHO’s October report that named processed meats as carcinogens—as the driving force behind the change.
“The focus on sustainability permeates what we do in Nordic Choice,” Stordalen told Hegnar.no. He added that he believes guests “will appreciate a good, healthy start to the day.”
But not everyone at his hotel group agrees.
“There are mixed reactions,” Ebba Kohl, who runs the restaurant at one of Comfort’s properties, told Sweden’s Västerbottens Kuriren newspaper (via The Local). “Some are upset and some understanding.”
banning pork but not eggs, beef etc? this is not for health purposes. Taqiya
