*** MEMBERS ONLY EVENT ***

Dear Members,

Together with the Swiss Chamber of Commerce, the SwissĂ´tel The Stamford and Swiss Pro we are pleased to invite you to an exciting member-only event on 18 May 2024 where sustainability will be the main theme of the event.

Come and discover the aquaponics farm of the Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford – a combination of aquaculture (the growing of fish) and hydroponics, which is growing plants without soil. Launched in 2019, both hotels came together to create the industry’s first urban aquaponics garden in efforts to meet the rising demand among guests for fresh quality produce and to support Singapore’s goal of producing 30% of its nutritional needs locally by 2030.

To get the full experience of how sustainability is integrated through different parts of a hotel, the tour will also take you in the rooms of the Swissôtel The Stamford and the Raffles City Convention Centre where you will discover different initiatives that encourages a more sustainable way of traveling.  

Finally, the tour will end with a delicious buffet at CLOVE restaurant where you will have a chance to indulge a limited-time menu with Swiss favorites, with some dishes incorporating produce from the Aquaponics farm.

This is a family friendly event as it presents a great opportunity for kids to learn about the food cycle and how we can reduce environmental impacts. The tour is most suited for children 10 years of age or older.

Swisspro Pte Ltd has generously sponsored part of the experience. Swisspro provides sustainable drinking water solutions to the Fairmont Singapore and SwissĂ´tel The Stamford, eliminating the need for single-use bottled water.
