Criteria of our dishes:
Atlas Kasbah has been a committed member of the climate-friendly menu initiative ever since it was launched by the Sustainable Tourism project of German development agency GIZ and the Moroccan High Commission on Water, Forests and Combating Desertification.
The principle is to offer diners meals with at least a starter, main course and dessert that meet the following three criteria :
The products are fresh and in season. A fresh, locally grown, in-season vegetable generates 7 times less greenhouse gas (GHG) than a frozen vegetable and 20 times less than an out-of-season imported vegetable.
Vegetable production generates 10 times less GHG emissions than animal production. We therefore prefer cereals, vegetables, fruits and legumes. To complete the picture, we rely on poultry, rabbit, fish, shellfish,...
According to the standard of the French association "bon pour le climat", the ingredients must be produced within 200 km. The Souss Massa region is particularly privileged as Morocco's leading fruit and vegetable region and a major supplier of seafood and local products.
Why adopt a climate-friendly menu?
Adoption of a climate-friendly menu offers several advantages, in particular improved traceability of products and formation trust relationships with suppliers ensuring better product quality. Furthermore, it means contributing to protecting the environment via concrete action against climate change.
