Torch Doha, Aspetar launch health food drive
Doha, June 11, 2014
The Torch Doha, member of Leading Hotels of the World, has recently launched the TORCH Wellness Initiative in collaboration with Aspetar, a specialised orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital in the region.
The healthy food concept is empowered by Aspetar Nutrition Team and is now available through a range of A la Carte specialties in restaurants and lounges at The Torch Doha Hotel.
Aspetar sport dietician Mahmoud Al Khatib stated: “It is a great achievement to launch the healthy menu at THE TORCH DOHA. This shows the interest of the hotel management to ensure the best healthy choices for hotel customers. These options were varied and meet various guest expectations and at the same time contain the necessary nutrients needed for a healthy body.”
Within the past weeks, 20 chefs from The Torch Doha have undergone training in order to gain a better understanding of the wellness concept and to ensure a successful implementation of the program. The chefs are key associates in different sections of the kitchen at the hotel.
The wellness training will continue after the first implementation stage of the concept, so that all chefs will have the proper expertise and continue awareness of healthy food choices.
Hotel manager Sherif Sabry said: “We hope that our guests will find the Wellness Food Initiative rewarding. As we are located at the heart of Doha’s Sports City - Aspire Zone, we believe the initiative is in line with Aspire positive lifestyle trend aimed to inspire the community to stand out for the right food options.
“We hope to continue to build on this trend and encourage others to become advocates of healthier lives.” – TradeArabia News Service
