SIA Adopts Sustainable Practices
Restaurants are not the only ones joining the farm-to-table trend. Singapore Airlines joins the global movement with its “From Farm to Plane,” which will see the airline sourcing produce from local farms of its destinations.
No date has been given, but the airline says that it will only use seafood from fisheries certified by the non-profit organization Marine Stewardship Council, a global group which encourages sustainable fishing.
The airline will also use more meatless ingredients for its in-flight menu. Its chefs will also create dishes using cherry tomatoes, pumpkins, green beans and lettuce that were sourced in local farms. The menu will be introduced in select routes at the end of this year.
