The flag ship of Íslandshótel, Grand Hotel Reykjavík, complies with the increasing guest requirements for organic food items and insures that our products listed as organic have been certified by independent authorities.
We offer our guests the following: a daily breakfast section with certified organic products including a certified organic “mini“ breakfast for meetings and a certified organic breakfast for individual groups. Certified organic coffee breaks are also available for afternoon meetings.
At Grand Hotel Reykjavík we actively source local products for our kitchen and strive to use Icelandic organic herbs and vegetables when available.
Whenever possible we purchase environmentally certified products and services.
According to the European Consumers Organization, wasted food is equaling about a third of the food intended for consumption. This is preventable and we want to encourage our guests to minimize food waste.
