BRAIN FOOD: BOOSTING PERFORMANCEBrain Food is all about serving food that keeps blood sugar levels stable and supplies optimal nutrition for the brain, providing benefits for both delegates and meeting organisers. The team at Radisson Blu developed Brain Food because they understand that the food we eat affects how the brain functions. Research has shown that eating the right food at the right time improves our ability to learn and concentrate, promotes quicker reactions and even lowers stress levels – all factors that can impact the quality of a meeting.
Brain Food offerings include lots of fish, salads, whole grain products, fruits and vegetables.
Brain Food items on offer at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway include cranberry juice, low-fat yoghurt, prunes, fresh fruit and muesli.
Mid-morning breaks offer options such as carrot cake, raisin cake and poppy seed muffins.
Lunchtime Brain Food items can include sundried tomatoes and goat cheese, chickpea and potato salad or turkey and spinach wraps.
Environmental InitiativesAt the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway, we set specific measurable targets each year, which are reviewed on a regular basis. We have a dedicated green team made up from all areas of the hotel who meet review costs and environmental impacts.
EnergyThe hotel has implemented a comprehensive “switch off and save programme,” which manages specific equipment more carefully to achieve reductions. The emphasis of this programme is on the use of energy-efficient lighting solutions
WaterWater usage is a major factor in any hospitality company. We identified our major water usage areas and have installed water-saving devices in all bedrooms and public toilets. This is expected to reduce our water consumption in the hotel by 14,319 cubic metres this year.
WasteWe have a visible signage and awareness programme in place, in which segregation takes place in all departments of the hotel.
Additionally, in collaboration with our Responsible Business programme, Think Planet, we are offsetting the carbon footprint of all meetings and events globally, booked by our Club Carlson for Planners members.
The best part – you don’t even need to do anything! A hotel loyalty programme first, carbon credits will be automatically purchased on behalf of all Club Carlson members – all at no cost to you.
All meeting and events emissions will be offset through
- Wind Energy Projects in India – renewable energy reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
- Kenya Tree Planting – one tree is planted for every ton of carbon offset.
So we now make it easier than ever for you to meet responsibly – by doing the right things for our delegates and the environment.
