‘The vision at City Seasons Hotels is to move forward in all areas where guest safety and comfort are our first priority. ISO 22000 system being designed to measure and improve the effectiveness of food safety performance in line with the legislative requirements, it was a normal decision for us to move forward into that direction with the aim to carry out a similar exercise in all other properties of the chain in the near future,” Demitry added.
