Hotel Westin is the sixth restaurant that carries halal certification in the Republic of Croatia. Hotel is known for excellent service typical of a five star hotel and the Halal certification is yet another confirmation of the same.
According to Mr. Dugonji? Halal tourism is a new form of tourism, which is becoming increasingly popular in the world. With this certificate Westin has taken another step forward by wanting to gain the trust and satisfaction of consumers who know and understand what is halal quality.
In a year that has been declared the year of elite halal tourism hotel Art decided to enrich its content and offerings by introducing halal quality. After the signing of the Agreement with the Centre for Halal Quality Certification, followed by five months of education and training of staff, finally on the 1st June 2012 the Ph.D. Aziz Hasanovi?, director of the center handed over the certificate.
The intention of the Hotel Art is to attract and accommodate those who want to make sure when they eat not to ask how it has been prepared. In the world there are already a number of organizations halal consumers whose members are also many non-Muslims, which of course only corroborates the fact that it is a style of healthy and natural living, and that halal is not only a religious category.
The owners and hotel management congratulate its employees to deservedly acquired personal certificates, and all interested parties are invited to come and taste the food prepared according to halal standards.
