Food Waste At Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu, the fight against food waste is at the heart of our commitment to a sustainable future, turning every meal into an opportunity to respect and make the most of our resources.


Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu is integrating the advanced technology of Orbisk bins, an innovative solution for managing food waste. These intelligent bins, which have the ability to weigh and photograph discarded food, play a crucial role in optimising the establishment’s sustainable practices. By analysing the data collected, Manoir Richelieu can fine-tune its food orders and recipes, significantly reducing food waste.


SACC (Charlevoix Community Assistance Service) is a local association which aims to help people from Charlevoix, mainly by distributing food, but also clothes and any other items that might help someone.  Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu has been working with them for many years, regularly donating food. Also groups coming to Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu can choose to donate food that has not been consumed during their events to an organisation such as the SACC.

Culinary recycling

At the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu, the breakfast buffet is offered exclusively at weekends or during special periods, as part of an effort to provide guests with a rich and varied culinary experience. Concerned about the environment and reducing food waste, the hotel is taking a responsible approach by reusing leftovers from this buffet to develop new recipes throughout the week. This initiative not only minimises food waste, but also encourages culinary creativity, offering guests innovative dishes while contributing to the hotel’s sustainability.
