Crowne Plaza Canberra and its associated operations — the National Convention Centre (NCC) and Parliament House Catering — has become a founding member of ‘Choose Wisely’, the RSPCA’s new initiative encouraging businesses to use cage-free eggs.
The RSCPA’s ‘Choose Wisely’ campaign promotes the use of cage-free eggs
“Choose Wisely is a fantastic initiative we are proud to align with,” said Crowne Plaza Canberra executive chef, Ian McInnes.
“From today we will ensure that every egg that is used across our three venues is cage free. This includes using only RSPCA-accredited egg providers so that we are certain that the eggs are either barn-laid or free range.
“Over time, we intend to extend this commitment to incorporate all produce covered within the RSPCA’s welfare-friendly food program, including pork and chicken meat,” he said.
RSPCA chief executive, heather Neil, said consumer demand for welfare-friendly food products is surging in Australia.
“Many businesses and some government organisations have already made the switch to cage-free, and we are hoping that Choose Wisely will see this trend grow,” she said.
To mark the occasion, Crowne Plaza Canberra is inviting guests to experience the cage-free difference by offering breakfast for just $20 for all booking made this year.
To book, visit www.crowneplaza.com.au or call 138 388 and mention the RSPCA when making a reservation.
