In 2022, Dusit Hotels and Resorts became the first hotel chain in Thailand to source 100% organic jasmine rice at all its properties throughout the kingdom. This initiative not only provides nutritional benefits to guests, customers, and employees but also generates sustainable income for the supported communities by directly purchasing from small-scale farms in northeastern Thailand. Additionally, the company began procuring cage-free eggs for six of its hotels and plans to implement similar projects as part of its ongoing supply chain management enhancements.
