First Urban Farm in Newport World Resorts Opens
The country’s pioneering integrated resort, Newport World Resorts, is taking a bolder step in its property-wide I Love Earth (ILE) sustainability program with the launch of a technology-controlled onsite farm, through Marriott Hotel Manila.
Aiming to grow high-value vegetables for use in its restaurants, the collaborators tapped BoomGrow, a regional agriculture technology startup to develop the first ILE Urban Farm within the property as part of its sustainable culinary program.
Through BoomGrow’s proprietary Indoor Precision Farming technology, the entire complex will have access to farm-fresh, clean and sustainable produce throughout the year.
The opening of the ILE Urban Farm makes Newport World Resorts the first destination resort outside of Malaysia to house BoomGrow’s Indoor Precision Farming Machine. Fresh produce will be grown and nurtured within a highly-controlled environment, using best-in-class hydroponic systems that are supported by artificial intelligence to ensure optimal conditions at all times.
The ILE Urban Farm is the latest addition to the Healthy, Responsible, and Sustainable Sourcing initiatives that include sustainable seafood offerings and cage-free egg use led by Marriott Hotel Manila executive chef Meik Brammer.
Last year, Newport World Resorts ramped up its commitment to caring for the planet with the launch of the ILE program, which carries out specific initiatives with concrete goals, by harmonizing the respective sustainability programs of the integrated resort and its international partner hotels.
This has allowed the ILE initiatives to prosper, and by 2022, earn a coveted Bronze Benchmarked certification for the whole complex from EarthCheck, the world’s leading certification, consulting and advisory group for sustainable destinations and tourism.
Newport World Resorts’ I Love Earth sustainability program is part of Alliance Global Group’s wider SustainAGIlity initiative.
