Hyatt Hotels & Resorts have proudly announced that they are now serving only free-range, grass-fed burgers to their guests. This is part of their new food and beverage philosophy, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served. The three pillars of the philosophy are healthy people, a healthy planet, and healthy communities.
The hotel brand has partnered with the Wisconsin-based Strauss Brands, a third-generation family owned and operated meat company that specializes in humanely and ethically raised meats, raised by independent farmers.
“We wanted to create something very special for Hyatt guests – the best of the best,” said Randy Strauss, CEO and third-generation co-owner of Strauss Brands. “Our family’s passion is to not only provide the healthiest burgers – but also the best tasting burgers possible.” Hyatt is the first national hotel chain to make this change and invest in the best quality beef available to their guests.
Jim Milkovich, Corporate Director of Purchasing for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, said of the decision, “Customer research indicated that grass fed beef was very important to our customers, yet, we knew to meet both ours and our guest’s expectations, we had to find the best-tasting grass fed beef in the United States. When we tasted Strauss Free Raised® we knew we had found what we were looking for.”
The Hyatt brand is making a bold statement with their partnership with Strauss; they are willing to go above and beyond for their clients and look at more than just their bottom line. The burgers are available at Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, and HYATT branded hotels in the United States.
