The Ritz-Carlton, Abu Dhabi Grand Canal, exemplifies its commitment to sustainability through groundbreaking farming initiatives. With its innovative, vertical hydroponic farm, the resort is set up to produce 10 kg of fresh, organic produce daily, all year round – 30 times more than traditional farming methods.

One of the most significant advantages of this hydroponic farm is its strides towards environmental conservation. By growing their own produce onsite, The Ritz-Carlton eliminates the emissions associated with food transportation, reducing their carbon footprint substantially.

Furthermore, the farm ensures zero spoilage, guaranteeing that every harvested item reaches the plate in its freshest form. Plus, the entire process is free from harmful pesticides, aligning with the hotel's commitment to health and sustainability practices.
