Cadbury goes free range

FEATHERS are flying at Cadbury House Hotel Health Club & Spa with the arrival of two free range chickens.

FEATHERS are flying at Cadbury House Hotel Health Club & Spa with the arrival of two free range chickens.

The chickens, named Benedict and Florentine, are part of the premier hotel's drive to cut down on its carbon footprint while becoming a bit more self-sufficient.

Guests will soon be also to tuck into some of the freshest eggs available as part of their breakfast or when they dine in the acclaimed restaurant.

Plans are now underway to build a coop where the two chickens will be joined by more feathered friends.

Group general manager, Mark Hands, said: "Demand for eggs at Cadbury House is somewhere near 400 per day.

"Now I don't think Benedict and Florentine would be able to manage that sort of production on their own but once the coop is built we will assess how many chickens we can keep under the strict free range rules.

"There's nothing quite like a freshly laid egg for breakfast and Mark Veale our head chef is looking forward to using the eggs in therestuarant and is something our guests I'm sure will appreciate."

A brand new filtered water system, coupled with a bottle sanitation process, has also been installed at the site.

Before the arrival of the new system Cadbury House would send around 400 mineral water bottles a month to be recycled. This meant not only constant deliveries of bottled water by lorry to the four-star venue, but additional trips to take the used bottles away.
